JAL once again has delayed the inaugural B787 services on the NRT-SYD route... The B777 will continue to operate the route as a precautionary one given the "icing issues" affecting the GEnx-1B engine.

Japan Airlines again postpones 787 services to Sydney

In a press release to the Australian travel industry issued 18 June 2014, Japan Airlines “confirms it will maintain current Boeing 777 with a three class configuration of Business class,Premium Economy class and Economy class service route until further.”
This will be the second time Japan Airlines has postponed 787 service from Tokyo Narita to Sydney. 787 services were to have started from 25 October 2014. Japan Airlines’ move could be seen as a precautionary one given the “icing issues” affecting the General Electric GEnx-1B engines on the 787.

Either they have gone with super narrow aisles, or they are rounding up and calling a 17.5" seat an 18" seat. Even with 17.2" seats the aisles on United's 787s aren't exactly spacious.

It seems the delivery rate in CHS is improving, that's good.

My own photo during the Gilze-Rijen Air Force Show. Arke showed off their brand new 787 during an F-16 formation and a low pass.

Maybe they should have made the fuselage wide enough to accommodate 9-abreast comfortably, then again I guess that would leave squeeze room for 10-abreast.
Give an airline an inch, and they'll create a new seat. I think it's best the current configuration stands. If you fly in the US, the seats are already squeezed, and God forbid you end up with a fat passenger sitting next to you, you'll wish you'd cancelled your flight. I once flew without taking that into consideration and a fat dude sitting next to me had massive arms and he literally overflowed into my seat! When I asked him to keep his arms to his side, he casually asked; "Where do you want me to put my arms?!"
It was then that I had no problem with airlines asking overweight passengers to purchase two seats! The only reason Ryanair still stays in business is because most of it's clientele are rather thin.
