I am planning on flying from Mia to Fra in May/June 2012. Just checked their website and it says that they will be using the 747! Is that right?? I thought it is a year round A380 service from/to Miami

Yes it certainly looks that way. Until the end of March 2012 its an A380 then with the new Summer timetable its going back to B747-400. Bit of a shame really unless they intend to change it to A380 at later date.
Same story for JFK. I looked through LH's schedule and it looks like the 3PM Departure to FRA will be operated by a 744 instead of the A388. Could this possibly change? Or are they using their A380 on other routes?

Quoting wilco737 (Reply 5): I guess it is too early to actually tell if it is 380 or 744. The schedule for summer 2012 is still being made and I am pretty sure that it will remain on 380 from the loads I have seen.
So lets wait a little while until the summer 2012 comes closer...
Was waiting to see what you thought. I agree a bit too early. And it seems as though the A380 has been doing great on FRA-MIA

Obviously it is just galley chat, but flying FRA-JFK two weeks ago I was chatting with the cabin staff and according to them LH management is very happy with all three of their current US A380 destinations. The only destination worldwide that may not see the A380 again next summer is J'burg.
Take the above with a heaping bucketful of salt as it just a purser and some flight attendants relaying what they have heard, but still good for something.
