Lufthansa has added it’s second route serviced by a 747-8i. It was widely known (speculated?) that this route was going to be to India, but the exact city was unknown. Finally, it is Delhi. Frankfurt – New Delhi (FRA-DEL). It will be daily service, starting August 7th.
It is really exciting for me as I am flying IAD – FRA – DEL in a few days. I will be on a 747-8i all the way! I am flying business class that too, so I will get to experience the new flat beds all thru the journey. This route was originally serviced by a 747-400.
