Manufacturers & airlines spend a fortune to install quality inflight entertainment and people end up bringing their own forms of distractions. That's just priceless!

LN6 ZA006 XC-MEX is finally flying after change incorporation/re-work. It's first flight since May 2012, when it was ferried to San Antiono for re-work. Probably this frame will return to Paine Field in few days for repaint and customer testing.

United Airlines B787-9 (reg. N38950) -- flight testing in Curacao.



I hope that with more B787s (especially the -9 variant), United will be able to mount even more Transpacific flights from San Francisco since it is one of the airline's hubs and a major gateway to Asia.

All Nippon Airways Begins Revenue Flights with the Boeing 787-9

Quote:


Several weeks ago, Air New Zealand became the first airline to take delivery of the new Boeing 787-9 — the stretched Dreamliner. With much pomp & circumstance, they took ownership of their “All Blacks” livery aircraft and flew it away back to New Zealand.

Then, just before the end of July, the second 787-9 was delivered to All Nippon Airways (ANA) (JA830A), and it quietly slipped away into the night off to Japan. At the time, it was unknown who might commence 787-9 flights first.



Air New Zealand, being the first to take delivery, did not plan to start their 787 on a new route until October when they would begin service from Auckland to Perth. The Kiwis had decided to operate flights back and forth between New Zealand & Australia to get their crew used to the aircraft (as this is their first 787) and although they were operating flights with crew onboard, there were a few with just friends and family. Despite that, it was ANA who would challenge the spot as first to operate the newest 787 model.

ANA was the first airline to take delivery of the 787-8, and they originally put it to work on domestic flights within Japan. The airline is also now the largest operator of the 787, with a total of 30 in service; 29 of those are the smaller 787-8, which is split between a long-haul configuration and a higher density domestic configuration.

The newest arrival to the fleet is set up in a domestic configuration as well, with a whopping 395 seats onboard. Meant to replace high-capacity 767s in Japan, the new aircraft will run back and forth between the Tokyo Haneda hub and other major Japanese cities like Osaka and Fukuoka. But could ANA get a 787-9 into service before Air New Zealand? You bet!

Before they even took delivery, it was announced that the first real flight of the 787-9 in Japan with passengers would be a special charity flight on the 4th of August. The flight, scheduled to be a round trip to and from Tokyo Haneda, flew by Mt. Fuji and was full of school children from Japan and the United States.

Just three days later, on August 7th in Japan, the aircraft started flying with-in the ANA network, replacing older aircraft.



The first commercial flight of the 787-9 was NH241, departing Tokyo Haneda at 7:25 am local time, heading south towards Fukuoka.

Replacing a 777-200 on this route, it turned around as NH248 and headed back to Tokyo to prep for its next flight. The plane would then fly NH25 & NH30 to and from Osaka’s Itami Airport, and then the fifth and sixth flights of the day were a trip to Matsuyama. A total of six revenue flights were accomplished for the 787 in the first day.

When this schedule was announced, Air New Zealand seemed to be scrambling to get their 787-9 into revenue service, but its first flight won’t be until August 9th. It will commence on an Auckland to Sydney run, replacing a 767.



Although the 787 was designed for very long and thin routes, the Japanese market is a very different beast compared to other places. Later deliveries of the 787-9 to ANA will come in an international configuration with 215 seats in a much more comfortable configuration.

As NH241 took off into the sky, heralding a new beginning for Japanese aviation, we can only look forward to seeing more and more carriers take delivery of this new aircraft.

787 Dreamliner Engine Fails Over the Atlantic

Quote:
The pilot of a 787 Dreamliner was forced to shut down one of the plane’s two engines about one and a half hours into a scheduled nine-and-a-half hour flight from the Dominican Republic to Manchester, England. The plane, one of six 787-800s owned by Thomson Airways, made a safe emergency landing in the Azores about four hours after the engine was shut down.

No explanation has been offered yet for the sudden engine loss, but this is a first for the aircraft since The Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) delivered its first 787 in the fall of 2011. The plane entered production about 4 years late and cost the company about 5-times the original $6 billion estimate. Thomson Airways was Boeing’s U.K. launch customer and received its first 787 in June of 2013.

The first major issue with the plane was a delamination of the composite skin on the plane’s fuselage. A more spectacular problem arose when a battery pack in a parked 787-800 ignited. The problems with the lithium-ion batteries appears to have been sorted out, but that caused a three-month ban on all flights of the 787 in early 2013.

The General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) built the GEnx-1B engines that are used on the Thomson 787-800 fleet. A different version of the engine, the GEnx-2B, is also used on Boeing’s latest version of its jumbo jet, the 747-8, and a series of incidents involving both engines caused the National Transportation Safety Board to have all the engines inspected in October of 2012.

While the engine loss gave the passengers a fright — one little girl asked her parents, “What if we don’t make it?” — modern airplane engines installed on two-engine planes like the 787 are designed to be able to complete their full flight from any point on the flight plan with just one operating engine. We’re sure that doesn’t make a passenger’s experience any less terrifying.

LN6 ZA006 XC-MEX (former N787ZA 6th 788 test frame). Now in white livery with red rudder. It should be ferried to PAE, painted and start customer flight test prior to delivery.
I wonder if they changed rudder to new one - this frame has got oryginally blue rudder and was build for delivery to LAN airlines. Red rudders were installed on LN3 and LN4 designed for delivery to Northwest Airlines. Or maybe they just removed paint and applied red...
