Boeing delivers first Lufthansa 747-8 Intercontinental
Boeing has delivered the first 747-8 Intercontinental passenger airliner to Deutsche Lufthansa AG.
Lufthansa employees will conduct airline-specific preparations to get the airplane ready for a May 1 flight to its permanent home base in Frankfurt.
The 747-8 Intercontinental will bring double-digit improvements in fuel burn and emissions over its predecessor, the 747-400, while generating 30 percent less noise.
