What are you guys guessing with regard to names for the next A380s? I'm sure there's going to be New York and San Francisco since LH has started/will start using the planes on these routes. But what else? Sao Paulo, Washington, Shanghai, Singapore?

D-AIMF will fly as "Zürich":

LH names its A380s after Star Alliance hubs, not just destinations where the planes will operate to. So future names could be Bangkok, Brüssel, Chicago, Delhi, Denver, Houston, Mumbai, Newark, San Francisco, Seoul, Singapur, Sao Paulo, Toronto, Wien or Washington.

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

Thanks for the information. I'm crossing my fingers for Washington since it's my second hometown.
