Boeing will deliver the first 787-9 Dreamliner to Air New Zealand in December 2010, after ANZ converted its original order for four 787-8 aircraft to four 787-9 aircraft.

“”Being the first airline to introduce the 787-9 aircraft will enable Air New Zealand to provide a superior, first-to-market experience for our customers and is a most desirable position for us to be in given the unprecedented sales success of the Boeing 787 model,”” said Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Rob Fyfe.

The 787-9 is a slightly bigger version of the 787-8 and has a list price of $183 million. Both are composite-bodied aircraft with higher humidity, wider seats and aisles, and larger windows.
