I just returned from a trip to Germany a few days ago. The flight was LH422 from FRA to BOS. As usual, the aircraft was a 747-230B. While in FRA, I realized that LH seems to operate a larger number of -430's than -230's but I have never seen a LH -430 in BOS. Have they ever flown them there? I'd love to see a photo of a LH 747-430 at BOS. I noticed that Virgin seems to alternate their between the 200 series & 400 series on their flights there.
But I have to tell you that the use of the B747-400 on both of Lufthansa´s FRA-BOS routes is not common.
After the events of September 11th and even it was planned to withdraw those B747-200 operating to Boston for years from service. But the replacement of these is the A340-300 on the route.
There is always the possibility for an aircraft change and thats also the reason for the shot but you´d rather
see the A340 taking over services to Boston than B747-400
