As far as pilot certification is concerned, is the 747-800 the same type rating as the 747-400?

I'm no expert, but I've heard if you have a 744 rating you need to take a course to know the differences, but it's the same type rating. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

I was under the impression the the 747-400 was a different type rating than the -100, -200 and -300 due to switch from a 3 to 2-man flight deck. I know that airlines such as United, Northwest, and more currently Atlas and Kalitta all fly the -200 and -400 as a different aircraft as far as pilot training goes.

There's no such thing as a 747-800. The 747-8 is the same type rating as a 747-400.

That's correct. Similar to a 787 and 777, you have to do differences training but it's the same type rating.

From a maintenance point of view (EASA rules) transitioning from the 747-400 to the 747-8 requires a three week theoretical differences course, plus one or two weeks practical training.

We will get a 3-5 day course to get the permission to fly the -8 as well and then we will fly mixed fleet 744 and 748.

Do all LH pilots automatically have to go through this course, or is it optional?

It is NOT optional. We all will be trained on the 748i and will fly both. Highest flexibility for crew scheduling.
