Both LH.com and FRA website are showing a new departure time of 14:45 with the same aircraft.

D-AIML (other aircraft, also A380) is underway. Hard to find actual timings, nothing on flightradar24

For the non-geeks: LH440 flies between Frankfurt and Houston.

It hasn't been the happiest of routes recently.

Display on LH app is confusing but I don't think it's diverted again. The new arrival time in IAH is 20:30 and a new departure time is 22:30 as far as I can see.

D-AIML must have reached IAH, because its on its way back now as LH441 with a 7h delay:

D-AIMI doesn't seem to have any technical issues, it left for JNB last night.

Often a fully loaded A380 returns to base instead of diverting to an unusual airport. They probably had to burn fuel anyway to loose weight so the trip back to FRA gave that opportunity. Note they descended to 25000 ft, which must have increased drag/fuel burn.
