Weather Causes Lufthansa A380 to Divert to DFW Airport

View Comments ()




    A Lufthansa A380 plane en route from Frankfurt, Germany, to Houston was diverted to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport for the third time in a year on Monday.

    Weather conditions in southeast Texas caused the airbus to land at DFW at about 3 p.m. After 5:30 p.m., the plane's crew timed out, so everyone had to deplane and the flight was canceled.

    NBC 5 received a photo from an airport worker who guided the massive plane to it’s parking spot.

    Lufthansa is making arrangements for its passengers.

    The passengers had to exit the aircraft via the stair car because the A380 is too large to fit at the terminal.

    DFW Airport recently began work to remodel a gate at Terminal D that will allow the largest passenger aircraft in the world to pull up to the gate.
