RWANDA AIR is determined to purchase two ultra-modern Dream liner flights, which are expected to arrive in the Rwandan capital, Kigali in 2017.

Quote:
After their arrival, the new flights with the capacity of carrying 350 passengers each will be for international routes of Asia, Europe and USA.

Rwanda Air senior route manager in charge of the eastern route, Alice Katiti, said on Saturday that the move is meant to meet challenges facing air transport sector in the region.

“We have ordered a new flight, Q400 from a Canadian aircraft maker Bombardier, which is expected to arrive on March 24 (3 March 2014), this year. This new flight will have the capacity of carrying 67 passengers,” Katiti said, adding that the new flight will be for in and outside Rwanda.
So the airline will buy brand new aircraft. However they say 350 passengers ? Mistake, i don't see any B787 with 350 seats.

With a two-class configuration, Jetstar pushes 335 seats in their 787s. If you reduce the pitch of the Y seats a bit, it should easily add another two Y rows.

Or perhaps they will take two 787-9 aircraft instead.

Thanks for the info, in deed scoot will put 375 seats onboard of its B787-9s, 302 seats Air New Zealand. So probably, the airline wants to switch from the B787-8 to B787-9

The 787 is coming to Austin today!

By News Staff

The first non-stop flight from London to Austin is in the air and is scheduled to land about 5 this afternoon.

British Airways Flight 191, a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, took off from Heathrow Airport about 1:10 p.m. London time for a scheduled 10-hour flight.

The return flight, Flight 190, is scheduled to leave Austin at 7 p.m. and will arrive in London early the following morning.

The route is the Austin airport’s first international destination other than Mexico.

Officials announced the flight last year.

“Connecting two of the world’s great cities, London and Austin, through this first time, non-stop service between ABIA and Heathrow Airport is sure to take our city to a new level for both business and vacation travelers, ” Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell said at the time.

Visitors from the United Kingdom represent the largest group of European travelers to Austin, city officials said, and Heathrow is also the top trans-Atlantic destination for Austinites.

Wow Kenya's Airways 787 is one sexy looking birds. Those red engines are really something. I heard that April 4th is going to be the delivery date of the first KQ's 787.

LN160 ZA610 C-GHPQ 1st 787 for Air Canada has been moved from EMC to the Fuel Dock, so it's probably ready to fly.
