Just a very brief post this morning.

Lufthansa’s 747-8i is set to debut in Los Angeles later today when it arrives at approximately 1:00pm (Los Angeles time). Flight 456 from Frankfurt is being operated by D-ABYA, which was the first 747-8i delivered to Lufthansa and which entered service on June 1.

I was fortunate enough to be in Frankfurt in June for the event celebrating the launch, and was equally fortunate to have experienced the 747-8i First Class cabin a few days later. Its a wonderful aircraft!!

I also had the chance to be on the observation deck in Frankfurt when D-ABYA left for Washington Dulles on her maiden voyage on June 1.

Next up for the 747-8i as far as US cities are concerned will be Chicago.
