    Lufthansa to axe Heathrow-Dresden:eek:

    Saxony will no longer enjoy a direct link with London when Lufthansa withdraws its service from the start of next summer’s schedule.

    According to lufthansa.com the non-stop service will cease from the end of March, 2012.

    A Lufthansa spokesperson cited unprofitability for the decision. The carrier claims that almost all passengers were travelling in economy class rather than on more lucrative business class tickets.

    They probably weren't buying J tickets because it was served by a CR9.

    Loads on that route weren't that bad, but the main reason might be Lufthansa's plan to change their route DUS-DRS from CR9 to entirely 735 - DRS-LHR has been operated by a DUS based CR9 for now.
