Fly the ?Queen of the Skies? to Bangalore

Lufthansa passengers can now book flights to the latest Boeing 747-8 destination. Tickets for flights on the Frankfurt-Bangalore route with the Lufthansa flagship are now on sale. From 13 September, the ?Queen of the Skies? will depart daily from Frankfurt for Bangalore at 12.15 hrs, operating under flight number LH 754. The scheduled arrival time in the Indian metropolis is 0.30 hrs local time. Two hours later, LH 755 will return to its home base in Frankfurt, landing at 08.25 hrs.
Lufthansa will soon take delivery of its third Boeing 747-8 and add the final touches to the aircraft, which will bear the registration D-ABYD. As soon as it is ready to enter into service, it will be deployed on the route to Bangalore – the third Lufthansa destination to be served by the new jumbo jet. The B 747-8 Intercontinental currently flies to Washington and Delhi.
On board, Lufthansa passengers can enjoy the new Business Class, which includes a seat that can be converted at the press of a button into a horizontal sleeping surface measuring 1.98 metres in length. The new seat offers exceptional comfort for passengers in a sitting or recumbent position, intuitive adjustment features, additional storage space and enhanced entertainment system.
The Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental is a completely new aircraft that builds upon the positive features of the Boeing 747 series, Lufthansa’s long-haul workhorse for more than 40 years. The aircraft’s wings have significantly improved aerodynamics and newly developed wingtips. The aircraft also provides tangible improvements in terms of eco-efficiency. The GEnx-2B engines consume less fuel and achieve a 15 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency and CO2  emissions per passenger. In addition, noise emissions have been reduced by 30 per cent.
In 2012, Lufthansa expects to take delivery of a further Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental, which is scheduled to operate flights to Los Angeles. To date, Lufthansa has ordered a total of 20 Boeing 747-8 aircraft.
