Beginning March 28, Lufthansa will be introducing the 747-8i on its Frankfurt – Sao Paulo route, replacing the 747-400 that currently flies between the cities.  This is being done well ahead of the World Cup that will be hosted by Brazil in June and July so that fans will be able to experience a great ride aboard one of LH’s newest and most advanced aircraft.

If you are in the US and planning on going to the World Cup, doesn’t it make more sense than ever to get to Sao Paulo via Frankfurt?   🙂
