Due to low demand, PrivatAir’s all business class service between Munich and New York, operated on behalf of Lufthansa, will be discontinued as of July 13th. The flights are operated by Boeing 737-700/BBJ1 aircraft. There are no changes to Lufthansa’s other flights at JFK, nor to PrivatAir’s ZRH-EWR service operated on behalf of Swiss.
