Lufthansa’s new Boeing 747-8 available for booking

Passengers can now book flights on Lufthansa’s first Boeing 747-8 aircraft, which has just been delivered in Seattle. Beginning June 1, Lufthansa will operate six flights per week with the “Queen of the Skies”on the Frankfurt-Washington route. Over the next few months, as four more new Jumbo jets join the fleet, the number of destinations served by the aircraft will gradually increase. By late summer, 747-8 flights will be offered to Chicago, Los Angeles, Delhi and Bangalore. Once the 747-8 enters scheduled service, passengers will also have the 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 in-flight entertainment system.”At the press of a button, the seat converts into a bed with a horizontal sleeping surface measuring 1.98 metres in length. The 747-8 Intercontinental will bring double-digit improvements in fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions per passenger over its predecessor, the 747-400. It is also much quieter, and generates a 30% smaller noise footprint. (http://www.lufthansa.com/747-8)
