Lufthansa has updated their timetable and has accelerated the debut of the 747-8i in Newark.

Originally, LH was to start flying the 747-8i between Frankfurt and Newark on March 29 however that has now been moved up to February 23 (as in tomorrow).  This applies to flights LH402 and LH403.

Please note that the 747-8i will temporarily disappear from Newark between March 29 and April 8 when it will be deployed to Houston and a 744 will substitute during that time.  This substitution is happening because the A380 fleet is going through maintenance and certain craft are having Premium Economy and new Business Class cabins installed.  The 748 will be back in Newark on April 9.

If you are flying from EWR on 402 or 403, you may want to revisit your seat assignments since the seating maps are drastically different.
