 NEW DESTINATIONS IN EUROPE AND INCREASED SERVICE FROM U.S.
 ARE HIGHLIGHTS OF LUFTHANSA'S 1992 SUMMER SCHEDULE
 LOS ANGELES, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The summer timetable of Lufthansa German Airlines goes into effect today with increased flight service from most of its 12 continental U.S. gateways to Germany and with new destinations on its European route network. Daily nonstop flights from Kennedy International Airport to Munich begin March 29 for the summer months, and Munich II, Europe's newest airport and Lufthansa's new hub in southern Germany, will open May 17.
 New service from the U.S. will connect Hamburg in northern Germany twice weekly to Miami International Airport on April 2, and it will operate year-'round. New destinations in eastern Europe, the Baltic states and Italy, along with expanded service to Barcelona and Seville, sites of the Olympic Games and Expo '92, are all part of the new summer timetable.
 Lufthansa also launches a new look on all of its intercontinental jets on March 29 with new inflight service features that include entirely new Business Class seats aboard the carrier's Boeing 747 fleet.
 The airline is currently offering "Early Saver" fares for travelers who book and pay for their tickets by March 31. Fares, which require 14 days advance purchase, begin at $548 from New York and other gateways for the months of April, May and September. At the same time, Lufthansa is offering free tickets to its passengers who fly one First, Business or full-fare Economy Class roundtrip across the Atlantic from any of the airline's 12 U.S. gateways between now and June 15.
 Altogether, 182 destinations are in Lufthansa's summer '92 schedule. From San Francisco, one of its two California gateways, the airline will resume daily nonstop service to Frankfurt from March 29 through Oct. 24. In the fall, flights are five times weekly nonstop. Daily nonstop Boeing 747-400 service will continue year-'round between Los Angeles and Frankfurt.
 From Miami, Lufthansa will now operate a total of 13 weekly passenger flights to Germany -- daily nonstops to Frankfurt, and twice weekly nonstops to Hamburg, Munich and Dusseldorf.
 The German carrier will have 42 flights weekly from two New York airports -- with three daily nonstops to Frankfurt: two daily from JFK and one from Newark. Other daily nonstops from Kennedy operate to Dusseldorf and Munich. For travelers who need a full day in New York, Lufthansa's 10 p.m. departure from Kennedy becomes daily May 4. Daily service to Berlin operates from Newark on a Hamburg-Berlin routing.
 From Texas, the airline will resume daily flights to Frankfurt from Houston Intercontinental Airport, April 6; Dallas/Ft. Worth-Frankfurt flights will operate daily except on Wednesdays. Lufthansa's two other southern U.S. gateways are Atlanta, which will resume daily nonstop flights to Frankfurt, March 29, and Charlotte, which has flights to Frankfurt three times weekly.
 Boston and Washington, D.C. offer daily nonstop service to Frankfurt and Lufthansa's seventh East Coast gateway, Philadelphia, has daily one- stop service. From the Midwest, Lufthansa also provides daily nonstop 747 flights between Chicago and Frankfurt.
 Lufthansa's newest destinations in Europe include Tallinn, Vilnius and Minsk, the capitals of Estonia, Lithuania and Byelorussia. Flights to Riga, Latvia, introduced last winter, are to be separated from services to St. Petersburg, Russia, due to the strong demand; and flights to Kiev, capital of the Ukraine, are to be expanded with two additional flights weekly from Munich. Along with Kiev, other western European destinations to be served nonstop from Munich for the first time are the cities of Birmingham, Manchester and Malaga, and the Italian destinations of Bari and Pisa as well as Palermo and Cagliari, which are in the Lufthansa network for the first time.
 To mark the Olympic Games in Barcelona and Expo' 92 in Seville, the German carrier has also stepped up services to Spain and now offers 127 weekly connections from Germany to ten destinations in Spain. All in all, Lufthansa is increasing flights within Europe by close to 15 percent over the previous summer.
 Lufthansa's new intercontinental inflight service will now feature four to seven abreast seating in Business Class in all of its Boeing 747s. First Class cabins on the 747s will now be located on the upper deck with seating for 12 passengers, and Business Class will now extend to the front of the main cabin offering more legroom and seat comfort.
 Business Class on all widebody jetliners, which include Airbus A310s and DC-10s, will offer a four-part dining service with the entree course followed by cheese, fruit and dessert offered from a serving cart and then a separate coffee, tea and after-dinner drink service. Economy Class will feature a snack buffet on westbound flights and a new menu with choice of two entrees. In all classes, the airline will introduce a new design for its menu covers. In September, Lufthansa will also introduce in-seat six-channel videos in First and Business Class, and 16-channel CD audio in all classes. All of the airline's inflight entertainment is provided free of charge.
 Lufthansa's free ticket offer can be used to fly to any of 96 destinations on the airline's European route network. The airline is making the offer in conjunction with the introduction of the new inflight services on board its intercontinental flights.
 Lufthansa passengers who make one First Class roundtrip transatlantic flight to any Lufthansa destination in the world by June 15 will earn one free Business Class roundtrip ticket to their choice of 96 destinations in Europe. Business Class and full-fare Economy Class passengers who complete one roundtrip Lufthansa transatlantic trip will earn one free full-fare Economy Class roundtrip ticket to their European destination of choice.
