Curious if anyone has update on LH's 2013 equipment plans. Searched entire entire web and here and last mention was months ago by LH to maybe bring the 747-8i or A380 to LAX by next summer. But upon looking at the booking sites I see that it is still planned as 744s to Frankfurt. Anyone know if they are really planning the 747-8i or A380 and it hasnt been updated yet or if we really are stuck with the 744 for another year.

LAX will be on 748i very soon. Date is not set, but for summer 2013 your chances are high that it is a 748i.

What about ORD? United.com had displayed 748's at one time, but has since reverted to 744's on the code shares.

ORD is still on the agenda for the 748i, but of course it will be evaluated over and over again and LH tries to find the best destination to send their airplanes.

What is LH's current sched to LAX? Will we see a capacity increase with the 748i?

Presumably LAX will see Air China 747-8i pretty soon after those machines are delivered?
