Boeing Completes Detailed Design for the 787-10 Dreamliner

-- Engineers reach design milestone nearly two weeks early
-- 787-10 on track for major assembly in 2016

EVERETT, Wash., Dec. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) has completed detailed design for the 787-10 Dreamliner, achieving another major milestone in the development of the newest and longest member of the 787 family. Boeing engineers reached the key milestone nearly two weeks ahead of schedule.

The milestone is critical to every development program because it means the information needed to build parts and tools for assembly has been completed and released for fabrication or procurement. Major assembly of the 787-10 will begin in 2016, followed by first flight in 2017 and first delivery in 2018.

"With the 787-10, we are building upon our experience and the 787-9 design itself to create this newest member of the super-efficient 787 family," said Ken Sanger, vice president of 787 Airplane Development. "Through our dedicated team and our disciplined processes, we have optimized the design for the needs of the market and are excited as we look forward to production."

As a straightforward stretch of the 787-9, which entered service in 2014, Boeing designed the 787-10 for superior efficiency as well as maximum commonality. Ninety-five percent of the design and build of the 787-10 and 787-9 will be identical, reducing complexity, cost and risk across the production system and providing operational benefits to customers.

The 787-10 is the third and longest member of the 787 family. With a range of 6,430 nautical miles (11,910 km), the 787-10 will cover more than 90 percent of the world's twin-aisle routes at a whole new level of fuel efficiency: 25 percent more fuel efficient than the airplanes it will replace and at least 10 percent better than anything offered by the competition for the future.

To date, the 787-10 has logged 164 orders from nine customers around the world, accounting for 14 percent of all 787 orders.

Air India finally admited that they groundedn 788s due to parts shortage due to financial problems:

Air India's $4.5 Billion Bailout Fails to Avert Grounded 787s
Anurag Kotoky
anuragkotoky
December 3, 2015 — 2:06 PM CET

Carrier grounded 2 Boeing Dreamliners on spare parts shortage
Airline didn't get components on credit due to cash crunch

Air India Ltd., the state-run carrier that has survived on a 300 billion-rupee ($4.5 billion) taxpayer-funded bailout, is struggling to pay for spare parts forcing it to ground two Boeing Co. Dreamliners.

The aircraft were not operational for about 10 months each as worldwide demand for parts outpaced supply from Boeing, and Air India failed to procure components on credit due to a “financial crunch”, Mahesh Sharma, India’s junior aviation minister, told parliament Thursday. While the carrier kept paying rentals of $1 million every month for each of the two planes, it also lost money as they were out of operation, he said.

The grounded planes underline the woes of the carrier that has been unprofitable since its 2007 merger with state-owned domestic operator Indian Airlines Ltd. Its share in the local market has shrunk to 16 percent from 35 percent a decade back, placing it third in national ranking, even as competition has intensified with foreign airlines buying stake in local carriers and new ventures starting operations.

Operators of the Dreamliner across the world are facing problems due to “high rate of failures of components,” said Sharma. And Boeing “could not support the demand of failed units on various 787 aircraft since demand was more than supply.”

One of the aircraft was grounded from April 2014 to February this year, while another has not been operational since January, Sharma said. A Boeing spokeswoman in India didn’t immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.
Marquee Jet

The Dreamliner, Boeing’s marquee jet, has experienced a series of malfunctions since its debut in 2011, including a three-month grounding of the global fleet in 2013 after battery meltdowns on two planes.

Air India and some other airlines such as Norwegian Air built their growth plans around the composite-material Dreamliner and its promise of more fuel-efficient operation. The Indian airline, which in 2O12 received the taxpayer-funded bailout, needs to meet cost, revenue and load-factor targets to keep getting money from the government every year until 2021.

The state-run carrier pays higher interest rates on its overseas loans compared with other Indian companies as lenders remain unimpressed about the airline’s turnaround. It probably lost $900 million to $920 million in the year through March 2015, according to estimates by CAPA Centre for Aviation, after losing about $810 million in the previous 12 months.

787: missing window

I have been meaning to ask this question for a while. Why in 787s there is a missing window for some seat rows? If you check the seating charts for any 787s in service, there is at least 1-2 rows of seats which have a missing window, given that its the same when looking from outside the fuselage that in their design they have a missing window at the rear and in the case of 787-9, also at the front. Why did they design it that way? I keep wondering..

You can see the answer in the pictures of the unpainted 787s.


G-VOWS Virgin Atlantic Airways Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner - C/N 37974 / LN 373 by Woodys Aeroimages, on Flickr


You can clearly see a line all around the fuselage at the place of the missing windows. This is the joint between the different fuselage sections. In Boeing's composite fuselage design for the 787 this extra space is needed for the strength of the joint. The A350 doesn't have this at it's fuselage section joints, but that's a newer design. It's something that probably has to do with the 787 being such a groundbreaking new design when it comes to use of new materials. Boeing will most likely change this on their next full composite fuselage design for a new program. Maybe they will also change it on the 1st complete overhaul of the 787 design.

I haven't noticed that before! Thanks a lot for pointing that out and for the explanation of course, now it makes more sense

Well in the upcoming 777X designs there are no such "gap" sections so therefore their next composite design is already there. But I don't think they will change 787's design anytime in the near future, especially now that 787-10 design is published as well.

The 777X is not composite, it is aluminium.

The A350 design has aluminum ribs with four outer composite layers joined together to make the fuselage.

The 787's fuselage is one big tube that's baked in an oven for extra strength if I remember.
