I've lost track! I think there is still one A343 (D-AIGP) with old F somewhere. I wonder when it is going to be turned into a proper two-class aircraft.

GP is still in service with old F seats, came back from DUB after a line check, and did a simple FRA-JED-ADD rotation this week. I suspect its a spare or rather on standby in FRA in case any A330 or 343 have technical issues.

D-AIGP, the last A343 with the old First Class cabin, is on its way to MLA for a retrofit into a two-class aircraft without the F cabin. This means there is no more old First Class seat on any LH aircraft in service!

Thanks Boeing_747SP for the alert!

I'm confused - wiki says "There is no LH aircraft in service with the old First Class cabin as of 27 June 2015!" yet the 5 744's based out of FRA still appear to have bed+seat combo. Has LH announced when those remaining 5 aircraft are going to be retrofitted?

Those are not considered old F for the purpose of this wiki and they won't have F at all after the retrofit.

The seat+bed combo is not "Old First Class cabin" for the purposes of this thread.

If you want to know what the OLD First Class seats on the 744 looked like please refer to the third photo in this post. The second photo shows the new (current) First Class seat aka bed+seat.

Gotcha, thanks for clarifying.

Original question still stands though - have they announced when exactly these seat+bed combos are going to be discontinued?

Three are currently been turned into two-class aircraft and one more (D-ABVM) will also be turned into a two-class aircraft. Two are expected to retire during the summer and two more possibly before the end of the year.

I'm eyeing a once-in-lifetime F trip in 3 months and the route I'm looking at has the 744 F. Now reading here I am worried to book it at all due to above quote. It is F or nothing for this case. Does your quote mean I will highly risk being "downgraded" to a business cabin? I also wonder how Lufthansa would compensate such situation if that happened.

I noticed that there are still Seat + Bed 747s going to DEN and BOS. Is there a reason they are showing no F inventory while SEA is still show F class inventory?
