On Wednesday (June 1, 2022), Lufthansa announced that their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is being prepared for delivery this summer following Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification. The aircraft, registration D-ABPA, will be named ‘Berlin’ and be placed into passenger revenue service during the second half of 2022. Upon delivery, the aircraft’s cabin will be fitted out at Lufthansa’s Frankfurt maintenance center for several weeks before initially being deployed on domestic German routes for training purposes. The aircraft’s first intercontinental destination will be Toronto, Canada.

Lufthansa’s new 787-9 will have an improved cabin product, including direct aisle access for all Business Class guests. The ultra-modern long-haul Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will consume around 2.5 liters of fuel per passenger and 100 kilometers flown, around 25 percent less than the aircraft it replaces, along with the associated improvement in CO2 emissions. In total, the Lufthansa Group has ordered 32 Boeing 787s, with deliveries scheduled between 2022 and 2027.
