In the 1990s, Boeing started to plan further development of the 747. The project was officially launched under the name 747-8 on 14 November 2005. The 747-8 is larger than the 747-400 and is intended to close the payload gap between the 777-300 and the A380. This has been accomplished by stretching the fuselage making the Boeing 747-8 with a length 76.4 meters the longest passenger aircraft in the world. The 747-8 will be fitted with wings with a revised aerodynamic profile and new wing tips, simplified flaps, and a fly-by-wire control system. In the fuselage and wings, new lighter and more corrosion-resistant aluminium alloys are used. The most important technological innovation is however the use of General Electric GEnx engines adopted from the 787, which deliver 296 kN of thrust. In the standard seating configuration the Boeing has room for 467 passengers. On 6 December 2006, Lufthansa announced that it had placed an order for twenty 747-8', with an option for additional aircraft. Delivery of the first aircraft is scheduled for the spring of 2012.
