Deutsche Lufthansa will give its short-haul fleet a remake with 100 mostly fuel-efficient jets from Airbus SAS, as the carrier endeavors to decrease its kerosene costs, which represents its single largest expense, according to Bloomberg. The airline will also order six Boeing 777-300ER for the long-haul fleet of its Swiss division and two additional A380 for its namesake brand, totaling a list price for the planes to $11.7 billion.
