Lufthansa to receive first 787 this northern summer

June 04, 2022

The Lufthansa Boeing 787-9 with the registration D-ABPA (above) and to be named “Berlin” will be delivered to Lufthansa following certification by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) this summer.

Lufthansa says the 787 will consume an average of around 2.5 litres of kerosene per passenger and 100 kilometres flown, which is around 25 per cent less than their predecessor aircraft. The CO2 emissions are also improved accordingly.

The airline says that the Boeing 787-9 “Berlin” will have an improved cabin product – including direct aisle access for all guests in Business Class.

Following several weeks of planned cabin refurbishments at Lufthansa’s maintenance in Frankfurt, the aircraft will be deployed initially on domestic German routes for training purposes. The first intercontinental scheduled destination of the Lufthansa “Dreamliner” will be Toronto.

In total, the Lufthansa Group has ordered 32 Boeing “Dreamliner” with delivery between 2022 and 2027.

About was developed to provide everyone in the world a one-stop shop for everything related to airlines, formed by a team of aviation editors, who have forensically researched nearly every airline in the world.

Our rating system is rated from one to seven stars on safety – with seven being the highest ranking. Within each airline, you will find the country of origin, airline code, booking URL and seat map information. The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies, lead associations as well as the airlines own safety data. Every airline has a safety rating breakdown so you can see exactly how they rate.

Over 230 of the airlines on the site that carry 99 per cent of the world’s passengers have a product rating. Given that low cost, regional and full-service carriers are so different we have constructed a different rating system for each which can be found within each airline.
