This is one of the only passenger 747 routes still operating in the world. Lufthansa operates their 747-8s to LAX, ORD, BKK, PVG, and one or two others. It’s so sad to see the queens presence in our skies so quickly disappear.

The photos are ready!
Our ride for today - just kidding this is a LH-744 I saw at DEN a couple years ago
I remember coming back from vacation 5 years ago and having a connecting flight in DEN. our aircraft (United 737) parking literally in between the Lufthansa 747 and a BA 747.
(Now they replaced it with the A350, not as impressive in size :/)
Apart from the flaps in cruise ;) a very nice topic! The Queen of the Skies is just amazing and your pictures show at it very well. Great scenery all around as well, beginning with the Rhein in Germany and then continuing with Ireland and the US.
Also that wing looks really good! Thanks for sharing!
