I visited the Museum of Flight in Seattle last Nov 9, and saw the 787 recently donated by Boeing

LN256 ZB029 G-VOOH 3rd 789 for Virgin Atlantic. Behind is LN252 ZA198 JA839J for JAL. You can notice black foil on the fuselage, this is place where WiFi Sat Antenna will be installed. So JAL will install WiFi on 788.

China Southern, Guangzhou (CAN) to Shanghai Hongqiao (SHA). I continue to be surprised that they are using the 787 for this domestic milk run.

Here is the interior in "First Class" (this is the second cabin, there is also a pod-style VIP section ahead of first class).

Here is a shot of three levels of the passenger-adjustable window darkening:

The lav door has an interesting double action, allowing for a full-width door (not accordion style) without swinging so far out into the aisle.

Delta chooses A350 and A330neo over 787-9, Boeing says it's because of available delivery slots.

Looks like Delta has been choosing Airbus for its long-haul needs lately than Boeing... despite that, though, it still has the following Boeing long-haul aircraft:

- Boeing 747-400
- Boeing 767-300ER
- Boeing 767-400ER
- Boeing 777-200ER
- Boeing 777-200LR

While the B757-200 is a narrow-bodied aircraft, it is also used for long-haul services, especially on Transatlantic routes.

I was reading that delta wanted the planes sooner then Boeing could produce. With Emirates dropping there 50 plane A350 order. Airbus had the slots for to build them in Deltas time frame.

Also Boeing didnt have the 777 slots and many companies want the 777x over the older normal 777

Looks like Boeing will need to woo more airlines to purchase its upcoming B777X aircraft... by the way, will the engines powering the aircraft be the same as the B787 today?

Anyways...

From what I've heard the wooing needs to come with the 777 program to bridge the gap to the 777X. They're fine and set on the 777X with 286 orders on an aircraft launched just last year.

That's a good start. Will the engines of the B777X be similar to that found on the Dreamliner, though? And by the way, when will the B787-7 and B787-10 programs be launched to allow more choices for airlines?

The engines powering the 777X are GE9Xs, which I think are based off the current 777 GE90 engines, but I'm not sure.

I haven't heard anything about a 787-7, the only thing I've heard of that seems similar was the 787-3, but I've only read about that. It was supposed to be a short range model built for domestic routes, particularly in Japan, but it didnt get enough orders to make it viable and was cancelled before it got off the drawing board.

The 787-10 program was launched in June of last year at the Paris Air Show and already has 139 orders including 30 from Etihad, 30 from Singapore, and 29 from United.

Those white engines stick out like a soar thumb.

I haven't heard anything about a 787-7, the only thing I've heard of that seems similar was the 787-3, but I've only read about that. It was supposed to be a short range model built for domestic routes, particularly in Japan, but it didnt get enough orders to make it viable and was cancelled before it got off the drawing board.

The 787-10 program was launched in June of last year at the Paris Air Show and already has 139 orders including 30 from Etihad, 30 from Singapore, and 29 from United.
The 787-3 was a 787-8 sized plane with smaller wings with standard winglets, it was supposed to be as wide as a 767 making it compatible with smaller gates at local airports in Japan. In the end the size advantage didn't outweigh the fact that the 787-8 would simply have a better fuel economy even on the short domestic hops. It wasn't the lack of orders that killed the 787-3, the 787-8 was simply too good. Together with both ANA and JAL it was decided to cancel the program and convert the orders the 787-8 on a 1 to 1 basis.

JAL decided later on that they would use their 787-8 on international long haul routes, and in a lesser extend on regional internal routes. The same goes for the 787-9s they have on order. This means they still have not chosen a direct replacement for their domestic 767 and 777 fleet, their ordered A350 are also for their international routes. It seems that they will first replace the older planes in their domestic wide body fleet with newer international 767s and 777s that will be replaced by the 787s and the A350s.

Boeing has been considering a small wide body aircraft as a 737-900 / 757 replacement, both before the 737 MAX was announced and now as a future replacement of the MAX. That won't be a 787-7, a simple shrink of the 787-8 as these kind of shrinks are almost never economically viable, see the A350-800. It would be a 787 based plane with a 2-3-2 configuration with a fuselage slightly smaller then a 767. With 200-220 seats this mini 787 would be just a bit bigger then a 757-200 or a A321neoLR. But the jury is still out if such a design would be better then a large single aisle replacement for the 737/757.

The Emirates slots only came available in 2019, the delivery of the 1st A350 to Delta is scheduled for 2017. So the available delivery slots came from another airline deferring their order. It's rumored to be AirAsia X as they recently have stated that they were looking into delaying their deliveries. One can also think of Afriqiyah Airways & Libyan Airlines whose A350 orders, both with deliveries starting in 2017 are very much in limbo because of the political situation in pretty much stateless Lybia.

The recent cancellation of 15 787s by Air Berlin was an opportunity for Boeing to create some early delivery slots for Delta. But Boeing already sold these slots to another Unidentified customer straight away, probably at a higher price then they would get from Delta.
