Executives from Boeing and All Nippon Airways (ANA) signed delivery contracts for the first Boeing 787 after more than three years of delays and estimated expenditures of $32 billion dollars.
Boeing rolled out the 787 Dreamliners at Puget Sound’s Paine Field in Everett, Washington, and yesterday delivered the first 787, a twin-engined, long haul, medium capacity airliner, to All Nippon Airways, which expects to take delivery of 55 Dreamliners by the end of 2017.
Boeing is relying on this super efficient, light weight jet to secure its future. It’s the first airliner to use composite materials rather than aluminium for most of its construction, and boasts tall entryways, the largest overhead bins and windows in the industry, and special systems to reduce noise and turbulence.
If you look at the pictures (above and below) you can see just how luxurious flying can be.
All I can say is – “WOW!”
