Lufthansa’s first B747-8 destination now bookable
02 May 2012
Bookings have opened for Lufthansa’s first B747-8, which has been delivered from Seattle.
Starting June 1, Lufthansa will operate six flights a week with the “Queen of the Skies” on the Frankfurt-Washington route. Over the next few months, as four more of the new jumbo jets join the fleet, the number of destinations served by the aircraft will be gradually increased. By late summer, B747-8 flights will be offered to Delhi, Bangalore, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Once the B747-8 enters scheduled service, passengers will also have an opportunity to enjoy Lufthansa’s revamped business class. The new business-class seat provides exceptional comfort, whether in an upright or reclined position or as a lie-flat bed, plus intuitive adjustments, additional storage space and an enhanced inflight entertainment system. At the press of a button, the seat converts into a comfortable bed with a horizontal sleeping surface of 1.98 metres.
The B747-8 Intercontinental will bring double-digit improvements in fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions per passenger over its predecessor, the B747-400. It is also much quieter, and generates a 30 per cent smaller noise footprint. Information about the “Queen of the Skies” is available at www.lufthansa.com/747-8.
