    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    Lufthansa will be utilizing the A380 on LH400/401 which arrives into JFK at 12:40pm (1:50pm winter schedule) and departs at 3:35pm (3:55pm winter schedule). Effective March 27th the A380 will operate four times a week (x236) and from April 12th it will be daily.

    Deciphering, at least I believe I have it right:
    2/28/11 - 3/26/11 A380 on Monday/Friday and A330-300 on Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Saturday/Sunday
    3/27/11 - 4/11/11 A380 on Monday/Thursday/Friday/Sunday and 747-400 on Tuesday/Wednesday/Saturday
    4/12/11 - A380 every day

    -Tad
