The first Boeing 787 Dreamliner that will enter into service with launch customer ANA has rolled out of the paint hangar.
“”Our teams are making outstanding progress in completing the first airplane to be delivered and achieving certification of the 787,”” said Scott Fancher, Vice President and General Manager of the 787 Program. “”We are inspired by the airline’s enthusiasm for this airplane and look forward to the day when we make our first delivery to ANA.””
“”ANA’s passengers will be the first to experience the 787 Dreamliner’s comfortable interior environment,”” said Mitsuo Morimoto, ANA Senior Executive Vice President and Member of the Board of Directors. “”Combined with ANA’s superior levels of service, passengers will enjoy a spacious interior, larger windows, comfortable seats and touch-panel in-flight entertainment screens.””
The 787 Dreamliner features composite materials which Boeing say help to make it more fuel efficient and provide lower operating costs. Boeing plans to deliver the first 787 to ANA in September. ANA will operate its first 787 revenue flight as a charter international flight from Tokyo to Hong Kong.
