Stretched jumbo: the Boeing 747-8

Stretched jumbo: the Boeing 747-8

The first version of the Boeing 747 was already referred to as a "jumbo" because of its awe-inspiring size. The new 747-8 is 5.60 metres longer than its immediate predecessor, the 747-400. That makes it the world’s longest passenger plane. On board the stretched jumbo, which accommodates 362 passengers, Lufthansa introduced its most modern

cabin concept in all classes for the first time. The new plane is also considerably more fuel efficient than its predecessors. That is mainly thanks to the new engines by General Electric as well as to the new wings.
