Delivery of first mid-size plane that flies long-range routes

Boeing finally celebrates delivery of first 787 Dreamliner to launch customer ANA

Boeing has finally celebrated the delivery of the first 787 Dreamliner to its launch customer ANA during a ceremony adjacent to the factory where the plane was assembled. Made from composite materials, the Dreamliner is the first mid-size airplane capable of flying long-range routes and will allow airlines to open new, non-stop routes demanded by the public. In addition to providing airlines with what Beoing calls unprecedented fuel economy and low operating costs, the 787 features a range of new technologies that improve the passenger experience.
ANA and Boeing completed the contractual delivery of the airplane on Sept. 25. ANA will fly the aircraft to Tokyo Haneda Airport today, with a scheduled departure of 06:35 (Pacific time). A live webcast of the flyaway can be seen at Video highlights of all 787 first delivery events are also posted on the website.
