One Question

Karl Ulrich Garnadt, chairman and chief executive of Lufthansa Cargo, answers:
"WE looked at the B747-8, at conversions, at A330s – and then conducted in-depth analysis of these options. We concluded that the B777F is the best fit for our network, size and range. The capacity (on the B747-8) is too high. The B777F’s capacity is also more suitable for the numerous markets we serve with a high frequency. We would rather have daily flights with 100 tonnes [cargo capacity] than four flights a week with 150."
