Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental Lufthansa


Queen of the Skies by Lufthansa

The first Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental in service with launch customer Lufthansa.
Lufthansa’s 747-8 Intercontinental is equipped with 362 seats in a three-class configuration (8 First Class, 92 Business Class and 262 Economy Class).

Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental was formally launched on November 14, 2005. It can carry up to 467 passengers in a typical three-class configuration over 8,000 nmi (15,000 km) at Mach 0.855. The 747-8I can carry 51 more passengers and two more freight pallets with 26% more cargo volume than the 747-400. 

The upper deck is lengthened for this aircraft. New engine technology and aerodynamic modifications allow longer range. Boeing has stated that compared to the 747-400, the 747-8I is to be 30% quieter, 16% more fuel-efficient, and have 13% lower seat-mile costs with nearly the same cost per trip.
