Personally, I'd be very surprised to see LH order more 744s; they have A346s on order and there is no route currently operated that would require the -ER's extra range. However, a 744F order would not surprise me.
Incidentally, does LH still operate its 747-400 Combis in a combi configuration, or is the SCD sealed and the aircraft used as all-pax (as I believe is the case, since the timetable doesn't show any acft in a combi configuration).

The Combis are all gone (Correct me if I am wrong). The A 340-600s are ordered to replace the B 742s, not the B 744s. They had serious plans to order 4 additional B 744s along with the A 380 before 9.11
