It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
This week, we have a Lufthansa Boeing 747-8i as it taxis out of Chicago O’Hare central terminal area, as it joins wide-bodies from United Airlines and KLM for the long haul back to Frankfurt Airport.
And yes – this plane is in the “Correct” colours that Lufthansa are known for (as opposed to the blue and silver mess).
Lufthansa operate a fleet of 19 Boeing 747-8i aircraft (the current iteration of the Boeing 747 design), as well as 13 of the Boeing 747-400 in its long haul/intercontinental fleet.
Along with the Airbus A330-300s, Airbus A340-300, Airbus A340-600s, Airbus A350 and Boeing 747-8i, they form the backbone of the Lufthansa long haul fleets, operating out of Frankfurt and Munich.
As for the passenger experience aboard a Lufthansa Boeing 747-8i – I’ve got a handy snapshot and full review if you wonder what Lufthansa Premium Economy is like on-board the Queen of the Skies.
More airplane art next week!
