Lufthansa has quietly brought the 747-8i to New York’s JFK.
Beginning July 15, Lufthansa will operate the 747-8i on flight 404 from Frankfurt and flight 405 from JFK. From the look of LH’s most recent timetable, the 747-8i will fly daily to JFK through October 24.
Previously, LH had indicated that it had no plans to bring the 747-8i to NYC and would rather have operated the A380 on a year-round basis between New York and Frankfurt. Apparently plans have changed and we passengers stand to benefit!
