The new Boeing 747-8 has 8 first class seats, 92 business class seats (after a significant makeover), and 262 economy class seats and would replace the Boeing 747-400 now flying between the 2 cities.

Delhi's 3rd Termina T3 is a F runway airport, capable of handling the Airbus A 380 which is presently the largest flying commercial flight.
