As I had warned in my previous post regarding the debut of Lufthansa’s retro 747-8i and the fact that changes to the timetable were possible, well change has happened.

Originally the Retro 747, D-ABYT, was to debut on Thursday, April 16 between Frankfurt and Chicago.  However the timeline for her introduction has been moved up to today, April 15.

D-ABYT is now scheduled to fly between Frankfurt and New York’s JFK as Lufthansa Flight LH404, departing FRA at 5:10p local time.   It will return as flight LH405, departing JFK at 9:55p.


What passengers in Newark may start seeing later this Spring!

D-ABYT enters service, scheduled to fly to New York’s JFK


At this point I don’t there’s much chance for any more changes to the plan….hopefully.
