Thanks to Flyertalk’s ” `X’ ” (yes the typing is correct!) who is located near Paine Field in Washington State for the tip that Lufthansa’s 4th 747-8i is heading for home tonight.

Operating as flight LH9875, It’s set to depart from Paine Field (PAE) later this afternoon and arrive in Frankfurt tomorrow morning.

The latest 747-8i, tail # D-ABYE, will enter service on Lufthansa’s Frankfurt-Los Angeles route sometime toward the end of October (no exact date has yet been set). Lufthansa’s next 747-8i will fly between Frankfurt and Chicago, however no “official delivery date” has been set by Boeing as of yet.
