Is there a projected timeline for the FRA-based 333's to be finished? Thinking of booking a M&M award ticket on the 333 IAD-FRA this summer, but don't really want to risk old F...

The A330 C&F retrofitting will pause for the summer because they need all the aircraft for the busy summer schedule.

Isn't FRA-IAD a 748 route?

I think on August 2nd, LH416 goes to 340-600. 2 class Wed and Thurs, 3 class the rest of the week. Still summer, so not sure when you intend to fly, but thought you may want to be aware of this.

6 of the 9 remaining 330's to be retrofitted are scheduled for the rest of this year. KI, KJ, KK, KF, KL, KB (in that order). KI may be done by now.

Spot on!

WASHINGTON (IAD) FRANKFURT:
Beginning August 2 for LH416 and 417, a 3 class A340-600 will operate on Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. A 2-class A340 will fly the route on Wednesday and Thursday.

I posted an update on my site that updates most of LH long haul operations going into Summer.

How accurate is LH's tool to track new F? Travelling from ORD to MUC the following on to HKG on 346s; both showing new F is not available. Does that mean I'm completely unlucky after all 90% of their 346 fleet has new F! Any other tools (Seatguru) that will indicate it's the old configuration. Will reps know? Anyway to know which tail number is servicing the route?

I am on LH477 YVR-MUC tonight Mar.31. Showing D-AIKI, which is not on first page. Forum search says old F. LH tool says new F. Which is correct?

LH will keep two 747 with old First in service this summer as spares. They will limit the rotation of the two birds to DEN, EWR and India and the board expects that those two birds are used on less than 10% of those flights.

Chances of new First - A346??

Flying from EWR-Munich on a A346, what are the chances of getting the new F? What percentage of the those aircraft have been outfitted?

Thanks!
