This is one just for Lucky, but also for those who like Lufthansa, with the announcement that German airline will be swapping a plane on its Frankfurt – Chicago Route.
The plane swap will be from the currently operated Boeing 747-400 to the new Boeing 747-8I.
The timetable remains the same for this route, with the changed flight below:

In terms of seating, the 747-8I has more seats in compared to its older cousin, with:
8 First Suites
78 Business Seats
262 Economy Seats
8 First Seats
80 Business Seats
298 Economy seats
This is depending on the configuration (there are two configurations out there)

Of course, if you fly Lufthansa First and are departing from Frankfurt, you’ll be wanting to visit the First Class Terminal – and the terminal offers a unique amenity – Lufthansa Rubber Ducks.
