Lufthansa to take delivery of first aircraft this month

Lufthansa to become A320neo launch operator

BERLIN, December 10, 2015

Germany’s Lufthansa is set to become the first airline to fly Airbus' revamped single-aisle A320neo jet when it takes delivery of its first plane this month, making it the launch operator.

Qatar Airways was due to be the launch operator, but Aviation Week, which first reported the story, said Qatar Airways had refused to take the jet as planned because of operational restrictions in place for the aircraft's Pratt & Whitney engines. - Reuters
