Lufthansa is set to debut its Boeing 747-8I aircraft on the Frankfurt-Washington DC route.

The German carrier is the launch customer for the passenger version of the new Boeing jumbo, and CEO Christoph Franz this week said that the first route for aircraft would be to Washington.

According to nazdaq.com, the announcement was made during a speech at the International Aviation Club of Washington yesterday (Thursday March 29).

Lufthansa has a total of 20 B747-8I aircraft on order, with the next-generation jumbo set to feature the carrier's new fully-flat business class product, which has caused much debate among Business Traveller readers (click here for more details and to join in the discussion).
