Sorry for my late reply I'm sure you are right there were problems of some sort. I hope I didn't cause any offence.

Virgin Atlantic mulls Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner

Virgin Atlantic is considering adding the Boeing 787-10 to its Dreamliner fleet.
“It would make a lot of sense for us to have some -10s,” Chairman Richard Branson said in an interview in Dallas, Texas. “We are definitely exploring that.”
The 787-10 is longer and larger than the 787-9, which will make its worldwide debut in the middle of this year with launch airline Air New Zealand.
Read: Air New Zealand gears up for Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner’s debut
Virgin Atlantic has signed on the dotted line for 16 of the mid-sized Boeing 787-9, with the first to begin flying in September, and holds options to buy five more.
However, Branson said his airline would be more likely to place new orders for the 787-10 rather than converting some of its current 787-9 orders to the larger plane.
The Boeing 787-10 doesn't boast the extended range of its smaller sibling but is designed to pack more passengers from tip to tail, at up to 330 travellers in a three-class layout compared to 250–290 passengers for a similarly-configured 787-9.
Boeing expects first deliveries of the 788-10 Dreamliner to begin in 2018 and already holds order from Etihad Airways and Singapore Airlines for 30 of the jets apiece, United Airlines (20) and British Airways (12).

Italy's Neos to replace B767s with B787s?

Neos (NO, Milan Malpensa) is reportedly close to ordering "one or two B787s" as replacements for its long-haul fleet of two B767-300(ER)s. Sources in the Italian airline industry claim an official announcement for the order, which could also include options for an additional Dreamliner, could come as early as next week.

Delivery of the jets would likely be for the first half of 2018.
http://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/ne...67s-with-b787s
They won't be taking the terrible teens or order any directly from Boeing, but Boeing did announce that they will lease 2 787-8s from ILFC


Quote:
Boeing, ILFC Announce New 787 Operator Neos

MILAN, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC) today announced that two 787-8 Dreamliners will be leased by ILFC to the Italian carrier Neos. Based at Milan Malpensa Airport in northern Italy, Neos will become the country's first 787 operator when it takes delivery of the airplane in 2018.

Neos currently operates an all-Boeing fleet of six Next-Generation 737-800s and two 767-300ER (Extended Range) airplanes. The airline will use the 787s to provide even greater passenger comfort and service, and expand its route network. ILFC is Boeing's largest 787 customer with orders for 74 of the airplane type. This is not an incremental 787 order for Boeing.
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.ph...067#assets_117





In other ILFC news, last month they converted 8 787-8s to 787-9s.

Their split is now.
787-8: 25
787-9: 49

In february ILFC reported that they had lease deals for over 50 787s out of their 74 on order. The Neos deal could be the last 2 787-8 for which ILFC had to find a customer, at the end of last month they only had 2 left on order for which they hadn't selected an engine yet.

edit:

I added up all known ILFC deals for the 787-8 and it fits perfectly. 25 in total, 11 with RR engines, 12 with GE engines & 2 without engine selection. Just like Boeing's order book.
Code:
Thai         	       6	RR
Norwegian   	       5	RR
Aeromexico     	       5	GE
Jordanian	       2	GE
Ethiopian	       3	GE
Sky Blue Holding       1	GE
UAE	               1	GE
Neos	               2
	
	              25
Air Berlin also had a deal for 3 787-8, these might have been converted to the 787-9. It's also expected that they will do the same with their direct order with Boeing but that hasn't happened yet.

LN14 is again inside EMC! Next one - LN5, probably after United's 789 will be completed.

Aircraft registration is the domain of each country's aviation authority. An airline can request a registration sequence, but can only be granted if the said block is available. In countries where there's a high turnover registration, numbers are assigned on merit just like the DMV. Take Brazil for example, all new Embraer aircraft retain Brazilian registration till delivery. Boeing on the other hand will assign a requested registration early, (if available) but will change it upon request before delivery.
