Lufthansa announced that it will deploy its first ten Airbus A350-900 aircraft on long-haul routes from Munich next January.

The planes are among 25 A350-900s that Lufthansa currently has on order.

The A350-900 is part of Airbus’ all-new A350 XWB family, which can seat up to 369 passengers in a typical two-class layout.  It has a carbon fuselage and new wings, and is powered by Rolls Royce Trent XWB engines, all of which contribute to a 25% fuel burn reduction.

Lufthansa’s A350-900s will be able to seat 293 passengers, with 48 seats in business class, 21 seats in premium economy, and 224 seats in economy.

The carrier says that the A350-900 will gradually replace the Airbus A340-600 aircraft currently in its fleet.
