According to my travel agent, HKG-MUC will go B 747-400 in January 2008 for LH. Can anyone confirm that?

Hmm, that would come as a suprise, since LH doesn't use any 747s to MUC. To schedule the aircraft effectively, they would have to introduce another 747 destination as well.

The FRA-HKG route is on a 744, so they could in theory operate FRA-HKG-MUC-HKG-FRA with HKG acting as the link between MUC and FRA.

I do have my doubts though as the Afternoon HKG-FRA and Evening HKG-MUC seems to fit in with LH's PVG operations as well (afternoon to Frankfurt, Evening to Munich - although there is now an evening flight to Frankfurt as well). If they did operate the rotation I mentioned earlier it would mess up that system and possibly loose some of the current connectivity offered.

I heard this rumour a while ago, but the rumour mentioned 'several' 747-400s coming to MUC. If Lufthansa can make money with these aircraft then why wouldn't they do it ? They don't even need to dead leg aircraft to FRA for maintenance. Put them on a scheduled MUC - FRA sector like they did with the A340s at one time. British Airways operates a fleet of one 767 out of MAN which finds its way back to LHR for maintenance on a shuttle flight when required.

the travel agent is ill-informed. definitely no 744s planned at MUC at all. not gonna happen anytime soon.

If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

thanks for that. If LH really needs greater capacity on MUC-HKG they should use the A346 with 3 Class.

just thought about witching with another route, looks like all the ones it is deployed on need it. The next new A346's arrive not before 2009 or so right?
