The first one, a BBJ 2, will be delivered back to the customer in December 2013. The second one, a Boeing 767 400FSER, is planned to be handed over to its owner at the beginning of 2014.

The ultra-modern cabin design for the BBJ 2 was created by a renowned international design bureau in London. The interior contains several innovation highlights, like a steam shower, an open cooking opportunity, an air humidification system and lower cabin altitude. Additionally, the aircraft is equipped with Lufthansa Technik’s state-of-the-art nice inflight entertainment & cabin management system, including GSM connectivity and live-TV. The nice system can be completely controlled via personal devices like the iPad or iPhone. To achieve a real cinema feeling, the BBJ 2 is the first B737 equipped with a 65 inch HD monitor on board.

The second project, which is expected to be finalized soon is a very rare type of the B767, the B767-400FSER. The completion of this type of aircraft is a new and special experience also for the skilled VIP specialists of Lufthansa Technik. The cabin design for this aircraft was created by Lufthansa Technik’s own VIP interior design department.

Cabin highlights of this project are the full VIP interior, a separate VVIP private area plus a full size lounge area and a dedicated entourage area. The aircraft is provided with finest surface materials and seat covers. It is also equipped with highly customized VIP galleys.

The B767 has a state-of the-art full audio-video-on-demand (AVOD) IFE system with Live-TV and iPad integration on board. The communication system includes Satcom, high-speed Internet and WLAN.

Additionally, Lufthansa Technik installed a therapeutic oxygen system and a high-end water system. Currently, Lufthansa Technik is also working on two B747-8 in Hamburg.
