Lufthansa welcomes a new aircraft model to its fleet. The first Boeing 787 (registered D-ABPA) has recently landed at Frankfurt Airport. The aircraft was originally built for another airline, but was not put into service. The ultra-modern cabin with comfortable seats in Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class will be renovated in the near future in the colors and design of Lufthansa. The newest member of Lufthansa's long-haul fleet will be deployed from October, initially from Frankfurt for training purposes on domestic German routes. The first intercontinental planned destination of the Lufthansa “Dreamliner” will be the Canadian metropolis of Toronto.

The state-of-the-art “Dreamliner” long-haul aircraft consume approximately 2,5 liters of kerosene per passenger per 100 kilometers flown. That's about 30 percent less than their predecessor model. Between 2022 and 2027, the Lufthansa Group will receive a total of 32 Boeing “Dreamliners”. Around 60 percent of the Lufthansa Group's total investment in the fleet goes to Lufthansa Airlines and Lufthansa Cargo. Boeing and Lufthansa have been partners for 90 years, during which Lufthansa has often been the launch customer for new aircraft models, such as the Boeing 737, 747-230F and the 747-8.

Spacious cabin

The Boeing 787-9 offers travelers an enhanced travel experience. The wide cabin of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner family provides passengers with an even more spacious environment. In Business Class, for example, the aisles are wide enough to easily walk through with trolleys. The high entrance exudes a feeling of even more space. The windows of the 787 are the largest of all aircraft types. Mounted higher on the fuselage, travelers can see the horizon even from the seats in the middle row. The overhead bins are designed for different types of hand luggage.

Improved Business Class

The Boeing 787 also features an improved Business Class. All seats have direct aisle access, convert quickly and easily into a two-metre bed, and offer more storage space. In addition, travelers have significantly more space in the shoulder area. Next year, the airline will introduce a new top-class product, co-developed by Lufthansa, in Economy, Premium Economy, Business and First Class.


Human Centric Lighting, a specially programmed, flexible lighting system, illuminates the cab with warm red light, graduated tones, and colder blue light. Depending on the time of day or night. The cabin is therefore tuned to the biorhythm of the passengers. The onboard blinds are fundamentally different from those on other commercial aircraft. The power blinds allow passengers to dim the windows at the touch of a button German airline.
