Nice! And a nice competition to the AF 380 that also serves IAD! (At least for connecting pax)

Makes sense. * hub, short enough to do 1 RT per day w 1 aircraft, high premium market, not as delay prone as EWR.

I was pretty sure that PVG would get the 748i first but I guess I was wrong.

You've been holding on to that for a while now...fitting that you should be the one to finally announce it!

PVG couldn't be the first route as it cannot be flown with one airplane, you need two for the PVG run.

Yeah, it was difficult to hold it back, but when Dr. Franz announced it, then it is official.

A very strategic deployment too. Congrats to Lufthansa and IAD

This is awesome news! I can't wait to fly on the 748i of LH.
I would have guessed JFK or NRT but IAD is a very smart choice.

Go go Lufthansa!

My LH source did not lie (as per other thread). Now, I owe him a bottle of wine ... but little "price" to be on the inaugural  .

Great news.

It is meant end of April, but rumours say it will be delayed until May... So not confirmed yet

I am sure this has been discussed before but how does LH justify operating both the 748 and the A388?

Well one aspect is that the 748 will ultimately replace the 744.

There are many airports that need the capacity but can't handle the A380.

Smart move by LH. Now let's get either the 380 or the 748 back to SFO already!!!!!

Thanks for the info Wilco!

for SFO would love to see A388 for the summer and B748I for the other seasons.

26 speedbird217 : Nice! Good news for IAD, glad to hear it. Might be a reason to choose LH instead of BA on my next flight to DC... Thanks for the info.
27 holzmann : As expected and as was told to me by an inside source about six months ago.
28 DocLightning : This has been known for a while...
29 ikramerica : My guess is A380 will remain at SFO, 748 will go to LAX from FRA. A346 continues from MUC. LAX could only start with a third 748. Block time for LAX
30 incitatus : I was hoping GRU would see the 748 soon.
31 StressedOut : Wilco, Any idea when Denver will see LH 747-8 service? Thanks.
32 adam42185 : BOS someday I hope too
33 Post contains images wilco737 : Summer A380 to SFO, winter 744 to SFO. And MIA the other way around. Good idea No sorry. DEN is 346 currently, so doubt there is a market for so many
34 ual777uk : Makes so much sense to see this route started first. Will any other flights be undertaken to get familiar with the aircraft first, for instance FRA-LH
35 Post contains images MadameConcorde : Would have been nice to see the 747 with Space Shuttle Discovery on top and the 748i at Dulles on the same day but I guess the timings won't be right
