Quoting N1120A (Reply 4): Who provided the engine? Did they have it shipped in by GE or is another LH plane bringing it in pieces?
Last I heard, a spare was to come in on a freighter from Europe.
I'm pretty sure they will make the Saturday departure as the flight plus trucking would not have the engine into SFO until the early hours during Sunday unless if they manage to locate an engine that is closer.

If CO has a spare 767 engine at their LAX hangars, they could truck/fly it up to SFO to trade with LH, if they can strap it on. They are both CF6-80C2 powered.

I saw the aircraft at a remote parking area at SFO this morning. It was looking quite "depressed" due to the lack of any activity around it. They'd placed the orange traffic type cones below each Engine.

It seems that another 747-400 from LH face problems during GRU-FRA (EZE-GRU-FRA) on friday night (May 13). My flight to Miami was overbooked and i stayed in a hotel during the night with a lot of LH passangers. They said the plane took off and some minutes after the cmdt warns that they will come back to GRU. In the saturday morning (about 10 am local time in GRU) there is a 747-400 parked (not an usual time for them as they arrive from FRA in early morning and continue to EZE)
When i come back in the monday morning the aircraft is still in the same position (probably need an engine change) . Anyone knows something more ?
