Lufthansa Group has indicated that its Swiss International Air Lines and Austrian Airlines divisions could end up operating some of the company’s newly-ordered Boeing 787-9s. The group is taking 20 of the type, powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines, but has yet to decide where they will be based.It has teased, however, with an image of 787-9s in the colours of both Swiss and Austrian, as well as the livery of the German flag-carrier.Lufthansa Group says it will be “significantly reducing” the diversification and complexity of its fleet, with seven aircraft types, including four-engined designs, being removed from service.
