Does anyone know why Lufthansa has refused to order any 787 series aircraft.

From our research and interviews, Lifthans bought the A350 to replace the A340s instead of the 787-9, and the 777-9x to replace its 747-400s and add sevice in the new 400 seat markets

$19 billion with a b, not million.

The Germans bought the A350 to spread a few Euro's around Europe to keep people working. They bought 777's to make money.

As per Boeing site, list price of a single 777-300ER is 300 odd million. Don't see any way they could get 34 planes for 19 million :D.

From the article they wanted to replace the A340-300 and B747-400. I think capacity wise the A350-900 is similar to A340 with around 310 passengers and proposed B777-9X might be closer to the B747-400 in terms of seating. I think the only 787 that would come close to these seating requirements would be the new 787-10 and perhaps they did want to wait for the new stretch variant that does not have many orders yet. Of course we will never know the details but this is what we can guess.
