In part 3 of Lufthansa’s extensive update for their Long Haul fleet for 2015, I look at the 747-8i and the new destinations it will see beginning in late March. The changes aren’t widespread, but if you live in, or travel to these LH destinations you are in for a treat with the 747-8i.
Beginning on March 29, 2015 the 747-8i will replace the 747-400 on the following routes.
Frankfurt – Buenos Aires
Frankfurt – Newark
Frankfurt – New York JFK (LH404 & LH 405) — As a side note, LH had indicated as recently as this past summer that FRA-JFK would be dropped from the timetable. It looks as though they changed their mind and will keep JFK as a gateway.
Beginning on April 27, 2015:
Frankfurt – Boston (LH422 & LH 423)
All 747-8i will operate as 4-class aircraft with 8 First Class, 80 Business Class, 32 Premium Economy and 244 Economy seats:
