LUFTHANSA says it will announce next year its route plans for the Airbus A380 having placed orders for ten aircraft, the first four due in 2008. Ten points have been earmarked in the USA and Asia. The aircraft will be delivered in 555-seat configuration with no bars, the upper deck totally first and business class and the main cabin dedicated to economy without the premium seat option favoured by some airlines. The carrier also has a requirement for replacing its ageing fleet of 60 plus BAE/AVRO jets, spread over five carriers. After aborted orders for both Bombardier and Dornier aircraft, and the withdrawal of the Boeing 717 rear engined twin jet, both the Embraer 170 series and the new Bombardier ”C” type remain as strong possibilities and the subject of evaluation.
