"Lufthansa is looking at Airbus’s A321LR, the long-range version of its largest single-aisle jet, but its CEO said it didn’t have the range for flights to the United States from Germany. "

"They can cross the Atlantic but they don’t manage to go from Germany all the way to the east coast,” Carsten Spohr told journalists on the sidelines of an airlines event in Brussels. "

"He also said Lufthansa was in talks with Boeing over a possible new middle of the market plane. “It’s too early, but we are in talks. They are talking to all major airlines,” he said. "

More A380s have been ruled out at LH.
At the current range promoted by Airbus, how far could the A321LR fly from Germany.
