After a long forced break, Boeing has been allowed to deliver B787 long-haul aircraft again for a few days. This also has an impact on Lufthansa, because it is expected that the future D-ABPA “Berlin” can still be taken over in August 2022.

Originally, this Dreamliner should have gone to Hainan Airlines or Vistara. Both carriers did not want the long-haul aircraft after all, so that Lufthansa was able to secure this "whitetail". Due to the delivery stop ordered by the FAA, the Kranich Group had to wait much longer than expected for the delivery of the first B787-9.

Before the first commercial use, the youngest Lufthansa cabin is to be installed. Lufthansa announced some time ago that the first Boeing 787-9 flight is to be operated to Toronto. There is no exact date for the first commercial flight. For training purposes, some domestic flights as well as flights within Europe are to be served with Dreamliners in advance.
