I am sure the Jetstar livery will look sexy on the 787. It will probably be on of the better looking paint jobs on the 787. Orange engines will look ugly. I hope they paint them the same color as the body. Does anyone know what Norwegian Shuttle will paint on their second 787 tail?

True! It would be great to see engines painted in gray color.

With the 1st 787 for Royal Brunei Airlines being loaded into the final assembly later this month the order is now finally listed as Royal Brunei Airlines instead of an order for an Unidentified Customer on the Boeing order books.

Yes, there are 6 direct orders by Business Jet / VIP Customer(s), 3 for the 787-8 and 3 for the 787-9.

On top of those there are several that will be leased through the leasing companies, 2 of them will go into assembly later this year.

LN141 787-8 ILFC / UAE Presidential Flight
LN143 787-8 ILFC / Sky Blue Holdings

Boeing is currently at LN126 in the production order.

PrivatAir has 2 787-8s on order, they will use them as Business Jet, so you could see it as a VIP jet.

Some 787s from regular order by national carriers are also likely to be used as official government aircraft. It's rumored that Mexico ordered 1 as part of the Aeromexico order.


So there will be at least 8 but probably more.

Mexican newspapers announced that the replacement for the presidential 757 is going to be the 787, and that it has been bought already.

I am truly surprised that the Presidential Jet for Mexico is a humble 757... what if he wanted to go to other continents like Europe, Asia, or Africa? I think a 757 would not be that sufficient to cover such a distance... I then believe it's a great day for the Mexican Government to purchase a Dreamliner to be part of the Presidential aircraft fleet. With that aircraft, I suspect that the Mexican government can go more often to Europe, as well as to the rest of the Americas, and possibly to Asia and Oceania. Way to go, Mexico!

They already traveled the world with their 757, you can see many pictures of the TP-01 at various airports all over the globe. It probably has extra fuel tanks that gives it enough range to cover a big enough part of the globe. The plane is just getting old, it was delivered in 1987 as the 1st ever VIP 757. And they just want another new plane to replace it, the 787 is then the most obvious choice right now.

Not really shocking, the 757 has a nice range for a narrowbody.
The presidential jet, in France, was an A320 until 2010. It had to do a few stops to go really far.
It's now an A330-200 previously owned by Air Caraibes.

A leg in the journey was always needed to get across the Atlantic or the Pacific, and this was one of the reasons they decided to get a new plane, they could've easily bought a 777, A330 or 340 but I guess since the 787 was on the drawing board they opted for the 787 instead.

Singapore Airlines selects Trent 1000 engines for Boeing 787s
Singapore Airlines has selected the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine to power 30 Boeing 787-10s. Also, subsidiary low-cost-carrier Scoot has chosen the Trent 1000 to power 20 787-9s.

Rolls-Royce said the order is worth $4 billion at current list prices.

The 787-10 order, announced May 30, is contingent on Boeing launching the stretched Dreamliner, which the manufacturer has indicated it is close to doing. The 787-10s are slated to start delivering in the beginning of the airline’s fiscal year starting April 1, 2018. Scoot’s 787-9s, some of which could be converted to 787-8s, are expected to begin arriving next year.

Scoot signed up with Rolls-Royce for a TotalCare maintenance services package for the Trent 1000s. Singapore Airlines has also signed a letter of intent for TotalCare on the 787-10 Trent 1000s.

A Boeing 787 Dreamliner from south China's Guangzhou City lands at Beijing Capital International Airport in Beijing, capital of China, June 7, 2013. The 228-seat 787 aircraft, operated by China Southern Airlines, is the first of its kind delivered to China. The debut flight on Friday marked the beginning of the 787 aircraft's commercial operation in the country. (Xinhua/He Jun)

ZA384 B-2733 for China Southern flew to FTW for painting:
http://flightaware.com/live/flight/B...530Z/KCHS/KFTW

I'm really courious why chinese frames in Everett aren't flying. And it's looks like Hainan is postponing delivery of it's Dreamliners. 2 in Charleston are ready for C flights, 1 need to be painted. 2 in Everett are still stored, one without engines nor paint.

ZA451 G-ZBJB (BA #2 frame) B1 flight scheduled:
http://flightaware.com/live/flight/B...300Z/KPAE/KMWH

And this is surprise - BOE4 N7874 in the air again, after long time (over 12 months?). Maybe some testbed work, or it has been sold and will go to SKF for change incorporation-rework.

It's interesting that they took the 2nd 787 for BA for the 1st flight before the 1st one.
