The day has finally arrived for the next-generation Boeing 787 Dreamliner: on Monday, September 26, 2011, Boeing (BA) delivered its first 787 Dreamliner to All Nippon Airways (ANA).
The 787 Dreamliner costs $185.2 million to $218.1 million each, depending on model configuration, and seats 210 to 290 people, depending on seat configuration. It’s a mid-sized, wide-body plane with a lightweight carbon composite airframe. Flying range: 7,650-9,780 miles or 14,200-15,700 kilometers.
Analysts expect the plane to use roughly 20 percent less fuel than comparable planes and that will represent a substantial savings for airlines: jet fuel usually ranks second or first in flight expenses, just behind/ahead of employees salaries.
Further, as noted, one can’t underscore the importance of the 787 for the United States. Commercial aviation represents one, critical, high-value-added export for the world’s largest economy. Sales of commercial planes are vital to the United States’ effort to end its trade deficit and start recording trade surpluses — a key component of any nation’s wealth. Commercial plane construction is also responsible for hundreds of thousands of domestic U.S. jobs.
