Earlier this week, Lufthansa announced an update to its timetable that reduces both service and capacity on flights between Dusseldorf and the US.

The biggest change is the conversion of Dusseldorf – Chicago to a seasonal route.     Going forward, the route will only be flown during the summer and will be suspended between October 25, 2015 and March 26, 2016.

Additionally, a capacity change has been made between Dusseldorf and Newark (EWR).   Beginning October 25, the route will be flown by an A330-300 aircraft, replacing the A340-300 that currently flies the route.

I suspect more adjustments like this to be coming in the near future as Lufthansa tweaks its Winter 2015/16 timetable and aircraft assignments.
