Lufthansa receives B-787 Dreamliner airplane
It is the first of 32 aircraft it has on order
Boeing and the Lufthansa Group celebrated the delivery of the first 787 Dreamliner, a B-787/9, to Europe's largest airline group at Paine Field, Everett, Wash.
The Lufthansa Group has 32 firm orders for the 787 and joins nearly 50 customers worldwide in operating the industry's efficient and capable airplane.
Using 25% less fuel and creating 25% fewer emissions than the airplanes they replace, the 787 family has avoided more than 125 billion pounds of carbon emissions since entering service in 2011.
Since revenue service began in 2011, the 787 family has launched more than 325 new non-stop routes around the world, including approximately 50 destinations opened since 2020. The 787/9 can fly 296 passengers up to 7,565 nautical miles (14,010 km) in a typical two-class configuration.
In addition to 32 Dreamliners on order, the Lufthansa Group has firm orders for 20 B-777/9 passenger airplanes and recently placed a firm order for seven of the new 777/8 Freighter.
