Boeing 747-8

New stretch plane: the Boeing 747-8

The awe-inspiring dimensions of the very first version of the Boeing 747 earned the airplane its world-famous nickname “jumbo.” The latest version, the 747-8, is another 5.60 meters longer than its immediate predecessor, the 747-400, making it the longest passenger airplane in the world. Lufthansa‘s new stretch jumbo jet seats 362 passengers and features a brand-new, modern cabin design concept. The new Boeing 747-8 performs better than its predecessor models when it comes to fuel efficiency, too, thanks to its innovative wings and, most importantly, its brand-new General Electric engines.
