I was just going to say which airline in the right mind installs 2-3-2 long-haul configurations now.

For example, Aeroflot has 2-2-2, some planes of Singapore Airlines.
P.s. sorry, can you agree to be my friend

Just to add to that, 34 frames!

Quote:
Deutsche Lufthansa AG (LHA) ordered 59 wide-body aircraft from Boeing Co. (BA) and Airbus SAS, splitting the purchase valued at $19 billion as the German carrier phases out aging long-distance aircraft.

Lufthansa’s fleet renewal is part of an overhaul initiated under Chief Executive Officer Christoph Franz, who announced his surprise departure this week to join Swiss drugmaker Roche Holding AG next year. Photographer: Nadine Hutton/Bloomberg
The purchase, Lufthansa’s biggest to date, is for 34 Boeing 777-9X aircraft and 25 Airbus A350-900s, the Cologne-based airline said today. Deliveries of the A350s will start in 2016, while the first Boeing 777x will follow in 2020.
Lufthansa’s fleet renewal is part of an overhaul initiated under Chief Executive Officer Christoph Franz, who announced his surprise departure this week to join Swiss drugmaker Roche Holding AG next year. Lufthansa already unveiled the purchase of new narrow-body Airbus aircraft this year, bringing the total value of planes ordered this year to $31 billion, and the addition of the long-distance jets would help replace older Boeing 747-400 and Airbus A340-300 four-engine airliners.
“Less fuel consumption, less carbon dioxide emissions and less noise: the aircraft on order will enable us to make a quantum leap in efficiency,” Franz said, according to the statement. “Never in the history of Lufthansa have we made a bigger investment.”
The next 777, the world’s biggest twin-engine airliner, will feature new engines from General Electric Co. (GE) called GE-9X on the upgraded model and the largest wing ever on a Boeing plane to help improve performance. It will be able to seat more than 400 people, Boeing has said. Lufthansa has so far not flown the current 777 in its own passenger business and only uses the aircraft for cargo and its Swiss and Austrian subsidiaries.

Split Order
The carrier’s decision to also buy planes from Airbus, after it initially said it would rather pick a single-provider of long-haul jets, maintains Lufthansa’s position as the biggest airline customer for the Toulouse-based planemaker. The airline is also the largest European buyer of Airbus A380s with plans to build up a fleet of 19 super jumbos.
The company now flies some long-haul routes with four-engine Airbus A340-300s and A340-600s, a fuel-guzzling plane that Airbus stopped making as demand dried up. The carrier ordered 108 planes in May, including 100 Airbus A320 narrow-bodies, in a transaction with a catalog value of about $12.4 billion. Airlines typically buy at a discount.
Lufthansa will operate the B777-9X on routes including Munich to Shanghai and Frankfurt to Bangkok, while the A350-900 will be deployed on routes including Frankfurt to Vancouver.
Lufthansa is increasingly focusing on long-haul operations as it shifts much of its European and domestic flying to low-cost subsidiary Germanwings as the airline also seeks to shed about 3,500 jobs. The carrier reported second-quarter operating profit of 438 million euros ($538 million).
The German airline joins European competitors Air France-KLM and International Consolidated Airlines Group SA (IAG) in upgrading its wide-body fleet. Air France also opted to split its purchase of 50 large airlines evenly between Boeing and Airbus, and IAG unit British Airways began regular service with Boeing 787s this month as part of a fleet overhaul that will also involve A350s from Airbus.
The order announced today brings the total number of planes delivered from this year through 2025 to 295 units costing 36 billion euros at list prices.
Lufthansa has dropped 1.6 percent this year, the worst performance of a European airline on the 32-member Bloomberg World Airlines Index, which has advanced 16 percent. Air France-KLM (AF) has gained 1 percent, while IAG has soared 77 percent.

Is it me or in that last picture the tail looks more like a 787 design than todays 777 tail?

I never heard they would change the tail in any press releases yet.

The total order consists of 34 firm orders, 7 options plus purchase for 23 more 777-9s which could add up to 64 777s in Lufthansa's (+ family) fleet.


When firmed this will be the 2nd biggest single order for the 777 after the Emirates order for 50 777-300ERs in November 2011. It might be topped by Emirates order the 777-9 at the Dubai airshow though.

the article that maybe you've missed...

Boeing 777X to spark mini-jumbo war
http://www.aspireaviation.com/2013/0...ini-jumbo-war/

Quote:
GE9X to feature 16 blades, versus 18 on GEnx engines
Folding wingtip to be operated hydraulically
Folding wingtip to improve lift-to-drag by 12%
Folding wingtip 800lbs weight penalty, against 777-200′s 3,200lbs
777X to remain ICAO Code E aircraft on aprons
787-styled tail fin, elimination of overwing exit confirmed
Elimination of overwing exit saves 1,000lbs of weight
787-styled larger dimmable windows, lower cabin altitude being studied
777-8X & -9X range boosted to around 8,100nm
777-8X to compete with A350-1000, banks on commonality advantages

an artist’s rendering of the 777-9X recently released by Boeing shows a 787-styled vertical stabiliser in addition to featuring 4 Type A doors, thereby confirming Aspire Aviation‘s previous report that eliminating the overwing exit will save 1,000lbs (453.6kg) while stretching the separation between the exit doors to a maximum of 60ft (“Boeing chooses largest wingspan for 777X“, 26th Jul, 12).

The 777-9X--which I personally think soon be officially named the 777-900ER--will serve to replace all the 747-400's and A340-600's in Lufthansa service. They may not immediately replace the 747-8I, though.

Actually, I think they will just drop the X and it will be 777-9.
