Delhi next destination to be served by the “Queen of the Skies”

Since the beginning of June, Lufthansa’s first Boeing 747-8 has been deployed on the Frankfurt-Washington route. Only a few days ago, Lufthansa took delivery of its second B747-8, which will operate a daily service between Frankfurt and New Delhi from 6 August. Before the new “Queen of the Skies”, which bears the registration D-ABYC, enters service, the final touches will be added to the aircraft at its home base at Frankfurt.

On board, Lufthansa passengers can enjoy the new Business Class, which includes a seat that can be converted at the press of a button into a horizontal sleeping surface measuring 1.98 metres in length. The new seat offers exceptional comfort for passengers in a sitting or recumbent position, intuitive adjustment features, additional storage space and enhanced entertainment system.

The Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental is a completely new aircraft that builds upon the positive features of the Boeing 747 series, Lufthansa’s long-haul workhorse for more than 40 years. The aircraft’s wings have significantly improved aerodynamics and newly developed wingtips. The aircraft also provides tangible improvements in terms of eco-efficiency. The GEnx-2B engines consume less fuel and achieve a 15 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions per passenger. In addition, noise emissions have been reduced by 30 per cent.
