Boeing has painted LN891, which was supposed to be delivered to Hong Kong Airlines (leased from GECAS), but has not been taken up in a special "Dreams Take Flight" livery, celebrating the charity work of Boeing employees in their local communities.

It's unclear what Boeing going to do with this aircraft, they will of course announce something about it very soon.

So if they went to the trouble of giving it a custom paint job, is Boeing going to keep that particular frame, or is it that they don't expect to place it for a while?

Boeing has revealed what they are doing with the Dreams Take Flight aircraft.

http://www.boeing.com/features/2019/...ht-08-19.page/

The biggest surprise that it's not a special paint job, this livery was applied to the aircraft using a large decal.


"The 787 program is certifying the largest full-body decal ever tested on a composite aircraft. If certified, the technology will offer airline customers new opportunities to promote their brand on the 787 Dreamliner through the creative use of photographs, complex multicolor graphics, logos, and various specific finishes with the same durability as paint."

Now that's something I want to see here in San Francisco, potentially as a flyover over the Golden Gate Bridge. The distinctive livery does make me want to take pics of it from a distance and an angle. Maybe it should tour South America, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa as well to sell that to potential customers too...

THey are so obviously targeting LCCs, who have been so reluctant to upgauge. Cebu Pacific for example, will need the 787.

But they removed Maroon from it because of strained relations with Qatar, replaced it with Gold, quite ridiculous and petty.
