I checked the desktop version and got exactly what you posted above even when I was logged in. So it's probably a glitch.

Even though they are selling the F seats (42C +8F) as C they are clearly marked as X 'blocked' and not / restricted. Curious what they will do once the flight is open for checkin and they actuall sell 50 C seats. PE is available to Y pax.

If I have 668.85 to spare I might reserve 1C in both directions using LH app and see what will happen but since I dont I wont be able to find out.

The 772 sees service on OS 125/6, 121/2, 131/2 on VIE-FRA vv this winter.
Was a nice surprise to see the OS 777 going again VIE to CAI once a week through the summer!

Interesting. I suppose a MR in business just became a lot more comfortable.

Lufthansa Airbus 340 FRA-LIS?

I am planning flights in September from Frankfurt to Lisbon and by accident found that the 1:15pm, LH 1168 departure is operated by an A340, some days even A340-600.
Checking random dates across September and October it seems this particular flight is always operated by the A340 but only on certain days (MON & TUE as far as I have checked, there could be more) and I would love to book this flight but wonder if this is common since it's unusual to have this large aircraft operate an A320 route.

Lufthansa flight LH1168
13:15 Frankfurt/Main International Airport (FRA) , Terminal
Operated by: "Lufthansa"
Duration: 3h 00min

15:15 Lisbon – Aeroporto de Lisboa (LIS) , Terminal
Airbus Industrie A340-600

I just found the answer in a nother post which was moved that's why I couldn't find it when I first checked.
It looks like LH is operating the A340 on numerous flights from this summer on European routes.

If a moderator sees this, please feel free to delete this post.

Here's some blogpost https://simpleflying.com/lufthansa-a340-europe-flights/ describing the situation.

I dug deeper, tried searching for multiple dates and to summarise:
DUB is fixed on A343
CAI is fixed on A333
VIE gets A346 all the times I checked. Good for fans of downstairs lavs.
LIS A346 on Mondays, Tuesdays are A343

All A346 show up as complete cabin with First class seats up in Business seatmaps and PE seats in Economy.

That gave me an idea to fly the F hardware for cheap, Lisbon being the obvious choice (=longer flight time), however, you can't book the F seats, they show up as occupied in LH seatmap on booking, and expertflyer.com reports them as blocked.

Any chance they'll be released for assignment at time of OCL?

See posts above, they are available to SEN/HON only and sometimes released at checkin.

FRA LIS has been operated with A330/340 in summer since a few years. You can blame the cruise traffic for that. VIE-FRA on OS also sees widebodies, this year its OS121 and 123

Code:
** AMADEUS TIMETABLE - TN ** FRA FRANKFURT.DE 01JUN19 08JUN19
1 OS 121 7 VIE FRA 1 0710 0840 0 02JUN19 02JUN19 319 1:30
2 OS 121 3 VIE FRA 1 0710 0840 0 29MAY19 24JUL19 772 1:30
3 OS 121 1 VIE FRA 1 0710 0840 0 03JUN19 03JUN19 321 1:30
4 OS 121 2456 VIE FRA 1 0710 0840 0 01JUN19 08JUN19 320 1:30
5 OS 123 15 VIE FRA 1 1210 1340 0 03JUN19 10JUN19 76W 1:30
6 OS 123 27 VIE FRA 1 1210 1340 0 02JUN19 04JUN19 320 1:30
