MIAMI — Lufthansa has confirmed the delivery date for its first Airbus A350-900 (D-AIXA • MSN 74), to take place on Monday, December 19.

Following delivery, Lufthansa Technik will install the cabin interiors in Munich. The German carrier will incorporate the aircraft to its fleet on February 10, serving the Munich – Delhi route.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our first A350-900 shortly before Christmas. In February, our passengers will be able to enjoy a higher level of comfort on their flights to Delhi as we have now made further improvements to key components of the A350-900’s cabin interior,” said Thomas Winkelmann, CEO of Lufthansas’s Munich Hub.

According to Winkelmann, these improvements include a new self-service area in Business Class, new Economy Class seats, larger IFE screens and improved connectivity.

The A350-900s will be configured with 293 seats, with 48 seats in Business Class, 21 in Premium Economy and 224 in Economy Class.

Back in September 2013, Lufthansa ordered a total 25 A350-900s. Of these, 10 will be based in Munich and 15 in Frankfurt, in order to phase out the carrier’s Airbus A340 fleet, comprised by 10 A340-300s and 21 A340-600s..
