Under the cover of darkness the 2nd 787-9 was rolled from the surgle line into the paint hangar last night.

After paint it will most likely roll back into the 40-24 hangar again to finish the assembly and the instalation of the test equipment.

With the doors open we had a glimpse into the Surge Line where we see the 3rd 787-9 on position 2 and behind it the LN142 ZA217 for Jetstar, the 1st 787-8 in a long time to be loaded into the surge line.

On the other side of the country we see flight activity with the:

LN81 ZA433 B-2723 Hainan Airlines
http://flightaware.com/live/flight/BOE433

This one hadn't flown since May after it came back to Charleston after paint in Forth Worth. This is probably a functional check flight to prepare for the C-1 flight and then hopefully for delivery soon afterwards.

I do agree. It's the retiming of the daily 777 flight that makes me wonder; being that it will be on the deck at HKG for 7 hours. BA make money by filling the premium seats and, again, a tag on is not good for yields here. Overall, I think BA have higher priorities than returning to MNL.

The launch of services to Austin is excellent news. This is exactly the type off route the 787 was built for.

Austin Texas on BA 787. Wow. They have Dallas right up the road. My day just keeps getting weirder. I guess there goes the question of possibly seeing an BA A380 in DFW, not if BA is going to AUS.

Austin does seem completely out of the blue. There's no big AA presence there and they already fly to Houston and to Dallas. So either they wanted to open a route that has currently no other direct connections to Europe or they will open this route as part of a major corporate contract. Austin = Texas = Oil, or it's deal with a company in the technology/IT sector that's also big in Austin.

How about a nonstop B787 instead on the LHR–MNL service, given that it is a thinner route than the LHR–HKG service? It can help reestablish a nonstop service in the Philippines while using up less premium space than a 77W, 744, or 380 on the route.

Yeah, sadly, that's true. I truly hope that BA could reconsider MNL if the Philippine economy becomes more mature in the near future because at the moment, it is expanding rapidly that it is the fastest-growing economy in Southeast Asia for like two quarters running.

LHR–AUS on a B787 makes me think more than just oil, apparently...

• Oxford University and other prestigious institutions can now connect with the University of Texas at Austin, Texas Tech, and other institutions near Austin, making it a great educational connection

• The prestige of Leicester Square as a center of entertainment and movie premieres will now be connected with the hub of SXSW (South by Southwest) Music Festival that brings in thousands of spectators and hundreds of musicians from around the US and around the world, making it a cultural connection

And by the way, here is the proposed schedule for LHR–AUS, starting from 3 March 2014:

BA191 LHR1155 – 1600AUS 788 D
BA190 AUS1855 – 1000+1LHR 788 D

Above schedule effective 30 March 2014. Service operates Day x36 from 3 March to 4 May 2014; daily service begins from 5 May 2014.

Also this will be the only true international transatlantic/ trans any ocean flight from Austin and nearby San Antonio combined (not counting Mexico City, Monterrey and Cancun)!!
The purpose of the Boeing 787 was to explore secondary point to point inter-continental markets and this would be one of those ideal routes!! Hope it does well!!

Xiamen Airlines Finalizes Order for Six 787 Dreamliners


Quote:
Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Xiamen Airlines have finalized an order for six 787-8s. Originally announced by Xiamen Airlines in May 2011, the order is valued at $1.3 billion at list prices.

"Adding 787s to our all-Boeing fleet is a strategic decision to facilitate our international expansion plans," said Che Shanglun, president and CEO of Xiamen Airlines. "The range and efficiency of the 787 makes it an ideal fit in our new, non-stop international routes."

Being from Austin, I'm excited that our "little" city is getting a direct flight to the most prestigious airport in the world! I've lived here since 1986, the change I've seen in this lovely city is phenomenal. I always feel like we're bumped out by DFW, IAH or SAT so to get this direct flight to Heathrow is exciting. I do love hopping into DFW from international on AA to hop on an MD-80 down to Austin where everyone on the flight seems happy yet it's nice to see this option. Cannot wait to see LHR destination at the gate in Austin as well as AUS at the gate in Heathrow one day. I'm starting to feel that our "little" Austin ain't so little anymore?

This was a pleasant surprise to learn about today. British Airways in Austin....******* wow!

I just noticed that... It looks like N789FT has got RR Trent 1000 engines instead of GEnx.

Then they switched those around with the 3rd one that will get the GEnx now. Which makes sense when the 1s and the 2nd will be delivered to Air New Zealand.

It's interesting thought that Boeing decided to go with 2 787-9 test planes with RR engines and just 1 with GE, especially since the 4th 787-9 which is the 1st non prototype but which will also be used for testing will also have RR engines. Maybe this has something to do that the tests with the new GE engines on the test 787-8 has started way earlier then the same tests with the RR engins (Flights BOE5 (GEnx) & BOE4 (RR)). Or it just because the 1st number of deliveries will all be RR and that it doesn't matter that much for the overall certification which engine is used for testing.

LN169 ZB003 ZK-NZE #1st Air New Zealand
So this is clearly now why ZB002 has RR Engines.
ZB001 and ZB002 will go to Air New Zealand after certification and refurbishment.

Also Uresh updated firing order LN162-180

Or they didn't switch anything, the guy behind that blog could have had it wrong.

also possible (replying to the reply to my quote), in the end of the day it's not that important.

Except for Air New Zealand there are no new airlines that were added to the list. But by the time these will roll out of the factory there should be a production rate of 10 per month. So it's just 2 months of production added to the list, we probably don't have to wait to long for the next update.

Boeing has updated the August orders and deliveries.

Air Canada has split their order for 37 787-8s in 15 787-8s and 787-9s. The 1 cancellation last month has now been confirmed as the Travel Service order.

The last delivery of the 3rd 787 for BA is booked in September, this keeps the August total on 10.
