Payload, yes. Range, there's still a significant difference with the A350-900 having a bigger range but the 787-10X could be much better on short and middle haul flights.

The 787-10Xs might also go to Scoot, at least a significant number of the 30. This could be one of the main reason to split this order.



ps.

When this order is firmed the total number of 787 orders will be 920, it will be the 1st time that it will break the end of the year total peak of 910 in 2008. With the BA order also firmed it will even be 938. If we see more big orders in Paris (Qatar, ALC) it could already top the 1.000 orders in total at the end of next month. That would certainly be a big boost to the 787 program, a boost it really needs right now after all the battery problems.

Poland's Boeings 787 to resume flights on Saturday
Polish carrier LOT to resume flights of Boeings 787s on June 1 as it seeks more state aid
Wed, May 29, 2013

WARSAW, Poland (AP) -- Poland's LOT airline says its grounded Boeing 787 planes will resume flying on Saturday, four days earlier than planned.

LOT is the third airline to resume flying the 787, after United Airlines and Japan's All Nippon Airways. The world's fleet of 50 787s was grounded in January after batteries smoldered on two planes owned by Nippon Airways.

LOT spokesman Marek Klucinski said Wednesday that the carrier's three 787s have had their batteries updated to address the security concerns. The first flight on Saturday is from Warsaw to New York.

Cash-strapped LOT hopes the fuel efficient 787, dubbed "Dreamliner" by Boeing, will boost business. It is seeking aid from the government and planning layoffs as part of a restructuring plan to be presented to the European Commission on June 20.

Way to go Singapore Airlines. The first big order that we can expect at the Paris Airshow.

Don't get to head of yourself now. The 787 program will defiantly break 1,000 orders easily with the launch of the 787-10X. That will add probably 200 or so orders. Scoot is already taking delivery of the first 787 order that Singapore Airlines placed originally.

Good stuff with the planes finally resuming flights but I am afraid not until a complete restructuring of the state owned company will we actually see any improvement.

Of course it will break the 1,000, it's just an order rush right now would show the world that the airlines have confidence in the troubled 787. And I do think it's possible at the airshow since they need just 62 more orders, something that is not unreasonable with the -10X launch, especially when the leasing companies go on an order spree.

The -10X will definitely break the 200 sales, maybe even already this year. And if the market predictions by Boeing, Airbus and independent analyst are correct in their market outlook for the market in the 787/A350 size range the 787-10X might in itself break the 1,000 sales at some point in time.

Those fly-bys before sending off to the UK and Japan, respectively, look impressive! Question: what is the likelihood of Turkish Airlines, a fast-expanding carrier, of ordering B787s to operate to even more destinations? It seems like with their fleet of A330s, A340s, and B77Ws for their long-haul fleet, the B787 could also prove to be a great fit to the airline's expansion plans... Perhaps it could also be used for its medium-haul services as well.

Turkish Airlines has said that they are going wait with a 787 or A350 order until the programs are a bit further in development, stating they won't buy paper planes. Which is manifested in their recent big orders for the A330 and the 77W. It's probably also an issue that they would join in at the end of the backlog, having to wait until the end of this decade to get their planes. That's simply takes too long for their current fast expansion plans.

Having said that, the 787 would fit perfectly in their fleet. They could use the -8 or the -9 on the thinner long haul flights and the -10 on their busy short and middle haul flights to for example Europe and the Middle East.

But with the huge number of orders for the 787 we can already conclude that the 787 would fit very well into the fleet of any airline with long haul operations.

Delivery statistics:
Thomson: 2
China Southern: 1
May: 6
2013: 7
Total: 56

Boeing press release on the Thomson deliveries:
Boeing Delivers Thomson Airways' First 787 Dreamliner


I also expect that ANA will formally take delivery of 1 more today with a fly out tomorrow or even on Sunday.

MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Thomson Airways announced the delivery today of the airline's first Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The airplane, the first of eight 787s Thomson Airways has on order, is the first to be delivered to a UK airline.

Thousands gathered to watch Thomson's 787 Dreamliner arrive at Manchester Airport, completing its delivery flight from Paine Field in Everett, Wash. Senior Thomson and Boeing executives, including Thomson Managing Director Chris Browne and Boeing Commercial Airplanes Vice President of Marketing Randy Tinseth, were onboard the delivery flight.

"After much anticipation, we are very excited to welcome the 787 Dreamliner to our fleet and as the first airline in the UK, hope our customers will enjoy the unique experience of this revolutionary aircraft," said Browne. "The extended flying range of the Dreamliner also unlocks a host of new and exciting holiday options for our customers, increasing the range of long-haul destinations available with Thomson Airways from four UK airports. Customers will be amazed at the unique look, feel and service – all of which will ensure the unique Thomson holiday experience starts as soon as they step on board this fabulous new aircraft."

The aircraft was welcomed on arrival at Manchester by Todd Nelp, vice president of European sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes and Ken O'Toole, Chief Commercial Officer for MAG, owner of Manchester Airport.

"Today's 787 delivery represents a very significant milestone in the ongoing partnership between Boeing and Thomson Airways," said Nelp. "Thomson becomes the first UK airline to operate the 787, the most technologically advanced and fuel efficient commercial jetliner ever built. Thomson's passengers will experience unparalleled levels of comfort with the 787's improved lighting, bigger windows, larger overhead bins, lower cabin altitude and enhanced ventilation systems. This delivery marks the next chapter in history for both Thomson and the UK aviation industry."

The 787 Dreamliner is composed of light-weight composites and features numerous systems, engine and aerodynamic advancements, making it more efficient to operate compared with its competition. It is the first mid-sized airplane capable of flying long-range routes, providing airlines with unprecedented fuel economy and low operating costs and enabling airlines to open new, non-stop routes preferred by passengers.

On July 8, Thomson's first long-haul Dreamliner flights will operate from Manchester to Florida and Glasgow to Cancun. Thomson will also operate services from London Gatwick and East Midlands airports. Later this year, the airline will introduce direct flights to Phuket, Thailand from the UK.

The Thomson 787 Dreamliner will carry 291 passengers and is configured with 47 seats in the airline's Premium Club cabin and 244 seats in the Economy Club cabin.

Thomson Airways is part of the TUI Travel PLC and is the UK's third largest airline operating 58 aircraft.

Can't wait to see China Southern's 787 cabin interior. They will be the first airline to have Thales' next gen IFE, if the press release on Thales is right.
