Lufthansa will deploy the Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental on their Frankfurt – Los Angeles route beginning December 10, 2012. The deployment of their newest aircraft replaces current Boeing 747-400 service currently operating LH456/457.

The airplane already operates service between Frankfurt and Washington Dulles, as well as Frankfurt and New Delhi. We attended the launch of the Dulles service this past June, and it was a fantastic time. Check out all the photos from that event here.

We’ll be on hand in Los Angeles for the inaugural flight, so look for dispatches from the West Coast come December 10!
