LH won't have any A346 in April... So the answer is probably "no".

I knew that it would sound strange...but is it possible that these are going to be test-flights ?

LH will operate some "route proving flights" on the A346 in cooperation with Airbus Industries.

One is FRA-SFO (April 15th/return 17th), the second one will be FRA to SIN (April 18th/return 21th).

LH´s first (out of ten) A346 will be delivered in the 3rd quarter of 2003. Start of scheduled service will be within the winter timetable 2003/2004 period.

Will they have normal Paxe on the plane or will they "use" Lufthansa and AI employees?

It'll be very interesting to see if LH will keep the 747-400 on the FRA-SFO-FRA route or will it switch to the A340-600 on this route by early 2004.

I think that really depends if LH makes money on air cargo business between SFO and FRA; if they do the extra LD-3 container capacity on the A346 could become very useful on this route.

They´ll have no "normal" pax on board. Only employees and perhaps some special guests.

Will the A/C be in Airbus house colors? Which A/C will be used for the flight? Probably not the first prototype, which had the gear damage from the high-weight landing test.
