Lufthansa Bets Big on Boeing, Orders More 777s and 787s


Lufthansa is betting big on Boeing with new orders for more state-of-the-art long-haul aircraft from the American aerospace company.


The airline has agreed to purchase 16 more aircraft, including 7 Boeing 787-9s, 2 Boeing 777Fs, and 7 Boeing 777-8Fs, Boeing's newly launched freighter aircraft.


In addition, leases for two Boeing 777F freighter aircraft (current technology), which run until 2024, will be extended.


The 7 Boeing 787-9 aircraft are intended to fill the capacity gaps created by the delayed delivery of the Boeing 777-9 (originally scheduled for delivery in 2023, currently advised in 2025).


Lufthansa will receive the aircraft, which were originally intended for other airlines, in 2025 and 2026. At the same time, the delivery dates for the Boeing 787-9s already ordered from Boeing will be revised and, in some cases, brought forward to 2023 and 2024.



Demand for air freight remains persistently high. To further maximize very profitable market opportunities in this business segment, Lufthansa Group is purchasing three additional Boeing 777F freighters.


One freighter, which has so far been flying for another airline, will be reassigned to Lufthansa Cargo in the upcoming weeks.Two new aircraft will follow later. Additionally, contracts for two leased 777Fs will be extended.


As one of the first customers Lufthansa Group purchased seven state-of-the-art and efficient Boeing 777-8F freighter aircraft. They are based on the new technology of the Boeing 777X. The first aircraft will be delivered starting in 2027.


With Boeing´s new long-haul aircraft, the Lufthansa Group will continue to modernize its fleet with aircraft among the most fuel-efficient and sustainable long-haul aircraft in their class.


The Boeing 787-9 consumes about 25% less fuel than its predecessors, while the 777-8F consumes about 15% less fuel. Both aircraft will have an equally positive effect on the carbon footprint.


Boeing launched the new 777-8 Freighter in January and has already booked 34 firm orders for the model.


With advanced technology from the new 777X family and proven performance of the market-leading 777F, the 777-8F offers the highest payload and the lowest fuel use, emissions and operating cost per tonne of any large freighter.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
