Any idea if it will be aircraft in the size of the A319 ACJ, A318 Elite or Boeing BBJ ? If they buy smaller jets the Bombardier Challenger and Global Express would make the most sense because LH already operates a large CRJ fleet.
I would love to see a Boeing Business Jet in LH livery with these nice winglets
It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

In order to give a better clue regarding the aircraft to be ordered:
The idea behind LH Private Jet is to take pax to/from small European airports that LH doesn't serve, and get them on the longhaul flights (pax may also chose LPJ because short-haul business class in Europe is nothing to write home about). As a result, no longhaul aircraft are needed, and the groups that use the service are fairly small. Reply 2 provides the answer.
Unless they completely change their business model, that is!
