Lufthansa expands her fleet with the order for 12 new airplanes. It´s rather a small number but there are two A380s included!

2x A380-800 (17 total)
1x A330-300
4x A320
5x E195

Lufthansa Supervisory Board approves order for twelve aircraft for the Group

29.09.11

Additional short-term demand will be met by Airbus and Embraer aircraft

The Lufthansa Supervisory Board has approved an order for a total of twelve new aircraft for the Lufthansa Group. Of that number, two Airbus A380s and one Airbus A330-300 will be deployed for Lufthansa German Airlines on long-haul routes for an interim period. The decision was taken by the Board at its meeting today.


There are also plans to order four Airbus A320s for Lufthansa German Airlines. In addition, five new Embraer195s will augment the Lufthansa Regional fleet. The new, modern, fuel-efficient aircraft will be delivered to the Group in stages from 2012. The order has a list-price value of about one billion euros.

Commenting on the decision, Lufthansa CEO and Chairman Christoph Franz, said: “The moderate expansion of Lufthansa’s passenger fleet will serve primarily to ensure that we can meet short-term requirements while modernising and consolidating our European fleet until such time as new aircraft technologies are available. It is the latest step in our ongoing strategy of deploying a modern fleet in terms of fuel efficiency, operating costs, noise and emissions. At the same time, the additional order for the Airbus A380 and A330 will underpin our plans on long-haul routes in the medium term. Along with the aircraft we have already ordered, which will join our fleet over the next few years, it will increase our ability to take targeted action and respond flexibly to fluctuations in demand or market changes.”

The order will be financed from the Group’s cash reserves or from external sources.

Looks like the didn't have the worst experience with the A380 so far otherwise they wouldn't order more.

They just have to replace their crappy business class. Kind of joke when they have codeshare with Singapore Airlines on major asian routes. Its such a downgrade once you go from Singapore Airlines to Lufthansa aircraft.

Lufthansa will install new business class across fleet in 2012

Lufthansa's much-anticipated business class revamp will roll out to the airline's Airbus A380 and other long-haul aircraft next year following the arrival of its brand new Boeing 747-8I fleet.

"We are upgrading our business class with the introduction of the 747-8 at the beginning of 2012," Frank Püttmann, Head of Lufthansa Group Communications Asia Pacific, confirmed to Australian Business Traveller.

Once the first 747-8 is delivered, "then we'll start to refurbish the complete fleet," Püttman promised.
That means an end to Lufthansa's older angled seats, which aren't especially comfortable for sleeping:



"I cannot tell you when we will be finished with the completion of the whole fleet, but we're not talking years, we're talking months," Püttman told Australian Business Traveller.
A Lufthansa spokesperson had previously confirmed plans for the new seats to Australian Business Traveller earlier this year, so we were keen to bring you more direct from the airline.



This seat concept -- which the spokesperson said "doesn't show the final version of the seat" -- reminds us of Cathay Pacific's new business class and looks like a great improvement.



Business class will be installed on the super-stretched upper deck of the German airline's 747-8I, in a changeup from the current situation, where business class is downstairs and first class upstairs, Lufthansa's Püttmann confirmed to us.

That's likely to mean a 2-2 layout, where every seat is either a window or aisle.
Frequent travellers, who appreciate Lufthansa's extensive European network from hubs at Frankfurt and super-efficient Munich -- not to mention the extra legroom in its slimline seats -- will be looking forward to the new seats.

Lufthansa's existing angled lie-flat business class seat -- which Australian Business Traveller tested out last month on the German airline's new Airbus A380 route from Frankfurt to Singapore -- is old, not particularly comfortable and has been eclipsed by the competition's newer offerings.
But with actual beds installed in some of Lufthansa's first class cabins, we're looking forward to what the airline has to offer in business class.

Thank God.

The current buisness class is the shame of Germany. In particular when a buisness class ticket costs just as much as on a premium carrier such as Cathay or Singapore airlines.

I have a flight from BER to LHR in July 2012. Can anyone tell me if LH has sold off all of the slots at LHR to the IAG group? I am a little worried that LH may drop the BER - LHR route if the slots they are currently using for this flight is those of BMI.

Anyone have some insider info on this? I specifically booked this flight so i would miss the connecting flight in FRA or MUC.
