After completing ground tests, the aircraft will begin initial test flights in November. It is scheduled to go into service next spring with the registration D-ABYA, LH said in a statement.


The 747-8I is 6 m. longer than the 747-400 and, at 76.3 m., is the world’s longest passenger jet. LH said it has ordered 20 747-8s, which are due for delivery from the beginning of 2012 through mid-2015; it also has options for a further 20 aircraft.
