Well good job Boeing for finally entering the last phase of testing. Its a couple of years late but the finished product looks amazing. Cant wait to hear the news of the first hand over of the 787.

What the Boeing 787 means to international travel

I have a question to those in this forum who may be in-the-know regarding the design of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and what it might mean for international travel to medium-sized and smaller airports.
Traditionally, only the largest airports have had long distance international flights, as the passenger aircraft required to make these trips have had to be larger and therefore required long runways for take-offs and landings. As someone who lives in a city with a fast growing airport (Milwaukee), this is one of the main arguments I've come up against from experts when inquiring why Mitchell International doesn't have any direct trans-Atlantic flights. Milwaukee is expanding their airport hand over fist, it seems, however, to prepare for the seemingly non-stop growth of passenger traffic. Part of the expansion plans call for extending existing runways and building new runways. Now that the Boeing 787 is coming to market, however, is it fair to say that airports like Mitchell won't have to lengthen their existing runways, at least as part of the equation of accommodating long distance international flights? Assuming there were allowances from the FAA, would this also potentially open the door for many more direct flights between cities and airports that had not previously been served by direct trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific flights? Could we see more and more medium-sized markets connected directly? Thanks to anyone who might have any insight or thoughts.

That image was taken at the Experimental Aircraft Association's 'Airventure' fly-in convention at Oshkosh, WI USA on Friday., 2011-07-29 as it was taking off to return to Everett, WA, after the airplane (registration N787BA) was on display for the day, during which it was open for the model's first-ever public tours.

The trucks in the background are various heavy USA military trucks awaiting overhaul at their assembly plant (Oshkosh Truck), located on east side of the airport.

Milwaukee would profit from direct trans-Atlantic flights, and while many of the aircraft that would operate these flights don't necessarily need the longer runways, however there is no harm in extending one runway at MKE. The International Arrivals Building at MKE would need to be expanded as well, because the international flights need immigration facilities. Its a great opportunity for MKE to capitalize on the liberalized air markets of Europe.

B787 Liveries


SOURCE: NEWAIRPLANE.COM

--> I add this in order for everybody to know which livery belong to what airline. The only commercial airlines liveries that are missing are the ones from Iraqi Airways and Norwegian Air Shuttle.

Leasing and private flights companies are underlined:

Boeing unveils first Dreamliner for delivery to ANA

Karen Johnson

Reuters

7:08 p.m. CDT, August 6, 2011

SEATTLE (Reuters) - Boeing Co on Saturday afternoon rolled out the first 787 Dreamliner to be delivered to launch customer All Nippon Airways, decked out with the blue and white colors of the Japanese airline.

Boeing presented the plane to ANA executives and crew under clear skies at its Everett factory north of Seattle. The first domestic flights are set to start in Japan in September.

"The plane is being certified to the highest FAA standards," said Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager, 787 program. "But the real focus of the traveling public will likely be on customer satisfaction and the elegance of the flight."

The 787 Dreamliner is a lightweight airplane that promises 20 percent greater fuel efficiency to operators than similarly sized planes. Boeing says as much as 50 percent of the primary structure will be made of composite materials instead of aluminum.

Aviation experts expect Boeing to apply the technology to future airplanes.

The interior of the first aircraft includes 264 seats -- 12 business and 252 economy -- with personal television sets, roomier seats, an automatic toilet with a wash function, more storage, an arched entry way with a beverage bar, dimmable windows and larger lavatories.

Boeing, the world's second-largest plane maker after Airbus EADS , is about three years behind schedule in delivering the first 787 largely because of snags in the unusually complex global supply chain.

The 787 is almost finished with flight tests and is set for delivery to ANA in September.

Boeing has taken 827 orders for the Dreamliner, a record number for a Boeing plane still in development. ANA has ordered 55 Dreamliners. The planes list for about $200 million.

Boeing is developing two versions of the Dreamliner. The first version, the 787-8, will carry 210 to 250 passengers on routes of 7,650 to 8,200 nautical miles. A second version, the 787-9, will carry 250 to 290 passengers on routes of 8,000 to 8,500 nautical miles.

Boeing also has been talking about a third, larger variant, the 787-10, and says it is seeing strong airline interest in the plane.

I agree! Milwaukee's airport has been booming (third fastest growing airport in the world now) largely due to the fact that it has become a very competitive airport with discount airlines Airtran, Southwest and Frontier all having sizable operations there. I could imagine some sort of discount international airline doing quite well by following the European model and instead of flying to the major airports, fly to the secondary airports. Ryanair does this in Europe and can offer greatly reduced ticket prices because of it. I could imagine Ryanair going internationally and flying to secondary airports like Milwaukee instead of O'Hare. This would be great for everyone, I think.
