Beginning January 1, 2014,  passengers flying on one of Lufthansa’s Boeing 747-8i aircraft will be able to use their small electronic devices during the entire flight (from gate to gate in ‘Airplane Mode’).  This applies to all routes that the 747-8i flies worldwide.

As far as the remainder of fleet is concerned, approval for different aircraft types in the LH Fleet is expected over the coming weeks as the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) works to establish guidelines and certifications for electronics use during the entire length of a flight.

I’ll provide updates as I see more information.
