I suspect some will go to OS and their 777s and 767s are getting older. Maybe some will go to LX. But I also strongly believe they will stay with LH mainline. It is the direct replacement for the A340-300 which has served LH well. So they will likely send it to A340-300 destinations like CPT/SJO etc.
