Ethiopian named their 1st 787 "Africa First".

i thought that '''Africa First'' is a communist slogan!

Boeing Celebrates Delivery of Ethiopian Airlines' First 787

SEATTLE, Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Ethiopian Airlines celebrated today the delivery of the airline's first 787 Dreamliner.

"Today begins the first day in a new era of flying for our passengers and brings us even closer to our vision for the future, Vision 2025," said Tewolde GebreMariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines. "We are pleased to be the first airline in the world outside Japan to receive this technologically advanced aircraft. We have been waiting for this airplane and now that we officially have it and will show it to the world, I can say with pride, it was worth the wait. This airplane is going to move Ethiopian Airlines to the forefront of aviation leadership around the globe."

The 787 Dreamliner is composed of light-weight composites and features numerous system, engine and aerodynamic advancements making it more efficient to operate compared with its competition. It is the first mid-sized airplane capable of flying long-range routes, enabling airlines to open new, non-stop routes preferred by passengers.

"Today marks not just another milestone for Boeing and Ethiopian Airlines, but a new beginning in our 65-year partnership," said Van Rex Gallard, vice president of Sales for Africa, Latin America, & Caribbean, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Ethiopian Airlines continues to show their strong leadership in African aviation and their growing presence around the globe. Being the first in Africa and one of the first in the world further confirms their position globally."

After taking delivery, Ethiopian will fly its Dreamliner to Washington D.C. where the aircraft will be on display and is expected to be visited by VIP guests and media.

The aircraft will then make its inaugural trip to Africa with its first revenue flight from Dulles International Airport to Bole Addis Ababa International Airport.

Ethiopian Airways has nine more 787 Dreamliners remaining on order. The airline was the first African airline to operate the 777-200LR, the first to order the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and the first to order the 777 Freighter. Ethiopian Airlines currently operates an all-Boeing fleet of 737, 757, 767 and 777, and now 787 airplanes in passenger service and a 757, MD11 and 747 in cargo operations.

Air India should be the next airline (news just in that they take delivery of their 1st one later this week), followed by Qatar (next week) and LAN (in 2 weeks time).

The Air India saga continues.

The airline had agreed with Boeing to take delivery of their 1st 787 today, after the government had approved the delay compensation package a couple of weeks ago. But now it seem that the Ministry of Finance refused to make the necessary payments therefor delaying the delivery even more. There seems to be no end to this bureaucratic mess that is the Indian government.

Probably yeah in order to compete with a newer A330s.

Silly media system. iPad's would've been cheaper, more fun and less heavy.

United Airlines' First 787 Takes Flight

CHICAGO, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines' first 787 Dreamliner has completed its first production flight as Boeing makes final preparations for delivering it to United at the end of September. The aircraft took off from Boeing's Paine Field in Everett, Wash., on Sunday. Boeing pilots flew the 787 around the Seattle area for more than three hours as part of planned tests of the aircraft's controls and systems.

During the flight, crew members examined the 787's onboard systems at high and medium altitudes. They also checked backup and safety elements, including cabin pressurization, avionics, navigation and communications systems.

Sunday's flight was part of a series of work that Boeing performs after each 787 comes out of its paint hangar and before airlines take delivery of the planes. The work also includes fueling, systems tests, engine runs and taxi tests.

Photos from the production flight are available for download in the media center on unitedcontinentalholdings.com under "First 787 Production Flight."
