Delivery of Boeing 777-9 aircraft is the furthest. Big posts will arrive in 2023 as soon as possible, if not لم More delay there and Lufthansa is even happy about that. The Airbus A350 will receive an innovation with First Class and the question arises whether the Swiss subsidiary Lufthansa, for example, will receive some machines.
