The GEnx-2B-powered aircraft is priced at $333 million. The new aircraft features an 8,000nm (14,816 km) range and has a capacity for 467 passengers in a three-class cabin.

Lufthansa flights will begin operating on Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental aircraft between Frankfurt-Washington (Dulles) and Los Angeles-Chicago O’Hare later this year.
