Lufthansa has launched its first fare-paying flight using an Airbus A350-900 aircraft.
LH792 from Munich to Delhi departed Lufthansa’s Bavarian hub at 12:30 local time on Friday February 10.
The aircraft used, D-AIXA, is the first of 25 Airbus A350-900s that will be operated by the German flag carrier as the type gradually replaces the Airbus A340 on long-haul routes. The A350 has a three-class configuration offering 48 business, 21 premium economy and 224 economy class seats. The type offers many economic and environmental benefits but is also noted for a new cabin lighting system which is designed to match passengers’ natural day and night-time biorhythms. It has 24 different settings to provide the right kind of light to enhance travellers’ well-being throughout their long journeys. You will be able to read more about the aircraft and its innovative lighting system in the print edition of Airports International magazine.
