If you have not already downloaded the Lufthansa Magazin iPad App, I would recommend that you take a few minutes and finally do it!

In this month’s edition, tribute is paid to Lufthansa’s first Boeing 747-8i that will enter service on June 1 when it flies from Frankfurt to Washington Dulles. The special edition covers the total efforts taken by Lufthansa Reporters over the last 2 years as they documented the progress of Boeing’s latest marvel. Included are a variety of interactive features, photos, videos and exclusive behind the scenes access.

Some of the Highlights:

-An interview with Nico Buchholz, Lufthansa’s head of Fleet Management.
-A great interactive piece on the history of Boeing.
-Behind the scenes assembly videos.

On a personal note, I will be attending the events surrounding the introduction of the airliner that are scheduled in Frankfurt for May 31. I’ll spend a few days in Frankfurt trying to absorb and see as much as possible, so stayed tuned for some great upcoming posts surrounding this moment in Lufthansa history. I’ll also be on board the 747-8i on June 4 from Frankfurt and will have an extensive review of the brand new Business Class seat after experiencing it for 8+ hours.

I just have to remember to order a pair of 128GB memory cards for my camera…..
