After delays (so many delays), the Boeing 787 Dreamliner finally made its first commercial flight, jetting from Tokyo to Hong Kong. According to the AP, the plane was mostly full of reporters and enthusiasts, some of whom paid thousands of dollars to be included on the maiden flight. If you're curious about what makes the Dreamliner so different, check out our coverage: it's got Android, a crazy efficient power source, and eco-friendly credentials, as well as creature comforts like bigger windows, more spacious seats, and enlarged overhead compartments.
Boeing is the BEST!
As an airline employee, all I have to say is if it ain't Boeing, I ain't going!
Love your enthusiastic loyalty. A beautiful plane but three years late and ten ton overweight. A lot of catching up to do guys!
I work in Moses Lake, WA and have watched the 787 come in for touch-n-go test landings for months at the airport (it has a large runway built for cold war bombers). The plane always looked real smooth.
Good for Boeing, they made a plane that is going to be cheaper, more comfortable, and faster, I'm glad there is one company that is caring more about it's customers than it's shareholders
