The first of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner passenger jet was delivered to All Nippon Airways president and CEO Shiniciro Ito on Sunday in Everett, Washington.
It is reported that around 800 787’s have been ordered around the world by various airlines, which should please Boeing. The new 787 has had a rocky path to self fulfillment with concerns and issues surrounding design and production delaying delivery by three years.
With the introduction of the latest Boeing craft, airlines can enjoy the benefits of added fuel efficiency, while passengers can enjoy the extra comfort and space during their flights. Among some of the more prominent features, the 787 has a carbon fiber body, larger windows, and an adjusted pressurized cabin so passengers don’t feel so disjointed when they adjust to the conditions of flight.
