The first ANA 787 Dreamliner was delivered to All Nippon Airways [ANA] of Japan and will start serving domestically from 26 October 2011. The 787-8 Dreamliner will carry 210-250 passengers on routes of around 14,500 kilometers, whlie 787-9 Dreamliner will carry 250-290 passengers on routes of around 15,000 kilometers.
787 consumes nearly 20% less fuel than other airplanes in its range, providing with greater fuel efficiency and exceptional environmental performance. Passengers will also notice a better interior environment, comfort and convenience.
New technologies have been incorporated in 787 Dreamliner for its unmatched performance. 50% of the primary structure including fuselage and wings are made up of composite materials, which contribute to its lightweight. New engines from General Electric and Rolls-Royce are used on the 787 Dreamliner. It also features large electronically dimmable windows.
Now it is a big challenge for Boeing to deliver these 821 airplanes in time.
