Boeing has orders for 821 of these Dreamliners, which fly 52 percent farther than the all-metal 767 aircraft they're replacing, while using 20 percent less fuel thanks to their carbon fiber design. Other upgrades include better cabin air, electronically dimmable windows, a more efficient turbofan engine with fewer fan blades and Android-based entertainment systems.
Even though the ultra-light composite technology has become popular among other airlines, including Airbus, three years worth of expensive delays won't be easy on Boeing. They'll need to sell a lot of the Dreamliners in order to recoup their losses.
Go Boeing! Im sure you wont have any problems recouping your losses... Your product delivers everything our current market wants and needs. Innovation and integration of technologies. Improvement in ride quality..better AIR nice ..my nose always dries up in usual plane air..
and airbus making a plane that few airports are even able to accept due to their size and weight comeon... Who made that business decision should get fired
I cannot wait to fly on one of these. As soon as one is available for a Chicago to Tokyo flight I'm there.
Congratulations Boeing! This is a great plane. It's nice to see a private company succeed on its own without taxpayer subsidies or government ownership. Keep up the good work!
And hey, a little smoke in the cabin on a test flight is small peanuts compared to the crash of an A330 on a test flight or the crash of an A320 during a demo flight.
Boeing! Makes planes flown by pilots, good!
You life rest in the hands of a human pilot.
Airbus! Makes planes flown by computer, bad!
You life rest in the nads of a computer, pray, a lot!
Up Up and away aaa!
In my beautiful!

Boeing is the BEST!!!! ;)
