Lufthansa Flight Operated By United

I am taking a Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt that is operated by United. What exactly does that mean? Will I be flying a Lufthansa aircraft or a United aircraft? Will the rules regarding carryon luggage be those of Lufthansa or the rules of United? Thanks for your help.

If it's a LH flight number operated by United, you'll be flying on a United plane. Carry-on restrictions will be defined by United, which are generally better for transatlantic flights (but note that if you are connecting on to a intra-European flight on Lufthansa, the restrictions will likely be much more strict for that segment). Also, you will check in at the airport with United, not Lufthansa. It would help for you to find out the actual UA flight number for use before and at the airport.

If it's an issue, be sure to check both the United and Lufthansa fares. Sometimes on "codeshare" flights (like the one on which you're booked) you'll see different fares depending on which airline sells you the ticket. Crazy, but that's the way it is.
