Lufthansa has introduced the ultra-modern Boeing 787 Dreamliner into their fleet. These long-haul aircraft are incredibly fuel-efficient, consuming only about 2.5 liters of kerosene per passenger per 100 kilometers (62 miles), which is a 30 percent improvement compared to their predecessors. Between 2022 and 2027, Lufthansa will acquire 32 Dreamliners. One notable feature of the Lufthansa 787 is its large windows, the biggest of any aircraft type. Placed higher on the fuselage, even passengers in the middle row can enjoy a view of the horizon. The overhead bins are intended to accept a variety of hand baggage sizes, enabling each traveller to comfortably keep an additional bag above them.
The Lufthansa Boeing 787-9 is a twin-engine, long-haul jet known for its fuel efficiency, consuming approximately 2.5 liters of fuel per passenger per 100 km (62 miles) flight distance, which is around 30 percent less than older models. It also emits less CO2.
The Lufthansa 787-9 now expands its route network to include Frankfurt to Dallas, Montreal, Denver, and Austin, in addition to its existing flights from Newark and Detroit.
The Boeing 787 Lufthansa large windows, positioned higher on the fuselage, offer passengers in the middle row a view of the horizon. Additionally, the electrically operated window blinds allow passengers to dim the windows and enjoy the passing scenery.
The Lufthansa 787 seat map consists of 26 Business Class seats, 21 Premium Economy seats, and 247 regular Economy seats.
Lufthansa B787 (787-9) Cabins
The Boeing 787-9 also represents to some extent Lufthansa’s product offensive in Business class, which many customers regard as no longer up to date. Thus, the Business class product selected by Hainan Airlines is to be placed above Lufthansa’s current Business class. The 26 Lufthansa 787-9 Business Class seats on the five “Hainansa Dreamliners,” for example, are arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration and in a reverse-herringbone layout. Each passenger has direct access to the aisle.
In addition, all Boeing 787-9s from the original order are equipped with the new “Allegris” cabin. This means that only the sixth Dreamliner will then receive the truly new Business Class at Lufthansa.
The cabin of the Lufthansa 787 Business Class has two features. On the one hand, the B/E Aerospace Super Diamond Seat in Business Class is a new type of seat in the Kont fleet, with which every passenger has direct access to the aisle.

The new Lufthansa 787 Premium Economy has also been introduced on the Dreamliner, which offers bucket seats in this class for the first time at Lufthansa. There is also a new type of seat in Premium Economy class and a cabin that is physically separated from Economy class. It is separated from Business class by a kitchen, and from Economy class by a wall.
The seats on the Lufthansa Boeing 787 are very comfortable, they are very well upholstered and much wider than the economy class seats. The seat pitch is also an advantage over Economy class. Of particular note is the significantly greater seat angle. The seat can be adjusted up to several inches backwards.
There is an armrest between the seats and a large surface that can also accommodate glasses. There is also a smaller shelf here that can be moved out with a pressure pulse. Under the tray are the controls for the entertainment system and the devices for adjusting both the leg rest and the backrest.
There are also new seats in Economy class on the Lufthansa 787-9 seat map, and, above all, it is possible to book extra legroom or a free middle seat, or turn 3 seats into a bed. Economy class on Lufthansa’s Boeing 787 usually has a 3-3-3 configuration, includes 21 seats, and is similar in design to the Airbus A350 cabin.
