Re: Rumor: LH to start FRA-BDL?

I will add that in SAN, LH rumors and 'visitations' by confirmed LH staff went on for years. This year, we (finally) have scheduled service to FRA on the carrier! (In fact, last year we received service to ZRH on Edelweiss, part of the LH group.) Rarely, it all ends with a happy conclusion - service...
