Quoting LHUSA (Reply 5): You're right... the aircraft is an A343 today. The flight took off at 5:13 with 40 open seats.
- It was scheduled to leave ORD at 16:40 local time, I wonder why it was late? A friend of mine who flies for AA was at ORD earlier today (in the morning) and he said he saw a LH 744 parked, they must have gone to another city in Germany. He said that the 747s usually have about a three hour turn around time.
Flying is the second greatest thrill known to mankind, landing is the first!

There's ATC issues at ORD right now becuase of the weather, so that likely caused the delay. There are now 3 daily widebody LH flights at ORD. 2 to FRA (747 and A343) and the 1 to MUC (A333/A343). This summer there will be a third FRA flight on a A343 (LH449).
