    FRANKFURT — Lufthansa announced its largest-ever aircraft order on Thursday, saying it would buy 59 Airbus and Boeing wide-body jets, including a new version of Boeing’s 777 jet.
    The deal, worth 14 billion euros, or almost $19 billion, at list prices, expands a sweeping fleet renewal by Lufthansa, Europe’s largest airline by revenue. The German carrier confirmed an order for 100 Airbus short-haul planes in March.
    Lufthansa said the order for 34 Boeing 777-9X and 25 Airbus A350-900 jets, which the supervisory board approved on Wednesday, would help it cut fuel consumption and shrink unit costs by about 20 percent compared with old aircraft models.
