I also wanted to open a new thread for this because the last LH longhaul order thread already had close to 100 replies.
German flag carrier Lufthansa is considering buying around 15 Boeing 747-8 long-haul jets, a source close to the airline said.
The airline wants to fill a gap in its fleet between the Airbus A340-600 and A380 aircraft.
In September, Lufthansa ordered 35 Airbus aircraft comprising five A319s, ten A320s and 15 A321s with an option over a further 30 aircraft.
