Back in March Lufthansa announced that Washington Dulles would be their first 748 destination.
This plane being added to Lufthansa’s fleet is pretty exciting news on a few levels. First of all, this is the launch aircraft for Lufthansa’s new business class product. But second, and more importantly, it’s an all around new and awesome plane, and an evolution of what is undeniably the most beautiful plane in the skies.
Anyway, they’ve just announced that June 1 will be the launch date for the 748 on the Frankfurt to Washington Dulles route, and the flights are now loaded into the system for 6x weekly service (every day except Tuesdays). They’ve also announced that Chicago, Los Angeles, Delhi, and Banglore will be the next routes to get the 748.
For anyone that’s interested, here’s what the seatmap looks like:
I’d give just about anything to be on the inaugural, though unfortunately my brother is getting married the day after, so I’m thinking that’s probably not a good idea? Maybe?
