Echoing my question in the prior thread, why TWA's customer code of -x31?

Would this plane, being destined for NH, not be a 787-881?

I didn't notice that the other thread was locked (I only noticed that once I got my post through), so I'm reposting my question: Isn't N787BA to be delivered to NH once Line Number 7 is delivered to them? If yes, then why isn't it designated as a 787-881?

Those tail shots are great.

Should we take a bet on how many more orders will be made and/or revealed this week? Any guesses of any new carriers?

My bet would be on United, American, Delta to make some orders in the future.

American's CEO said that they would probably be ordering by the end of 2007

I do not think so. I wasn't at an age where I would remember it but thinking about 13 years ago, that's 1994. Let me put it this way, how many people had anything faster than dial-up (of any speed) in 1994?

Always wonderers if this "last and final boarding call" is in fact THE last and final boarding call.

I'm sorry but the presentation was boring as can be. I'm sorry for being so blunt, but it was like...like...like anything but what I was expecting. No balloons, no music (apart from the dreary piano), no real celebration at all - except, perhaps, the Italians. The ones in Italy, not the ones in the US.

And then when they "revealed" the plane, they only showed some closeups - I don't think they showed the entire plane.

And then the Airbus joke - what was he thinking?

Sorry for being so down on the presentation. I just was highly disappointed - I expected far more fun and happiness. This presentation was what I would have imagined a roll-out at Tupolev or Ilyushin back in the days of the Soviet Union would have been like if they were ever wanting to make a show of such a thing as an official roll-out. (I dunno, maybe they did). Right down to Tom "commanding" them to have more fun than the Italians.

Ugh, I need to go back on vacation.

148 Post contains links and images Birdy : It was great to see 787 premiere (internet video broadcast); however, it was bit too short. Anyway, let’s hope Dreamliner will be as good as it look
149 Burkhard : May I suggest that airliners.net adds the 787 to the photo search engine? Should be the days to do it.
150 FRAspotter : I was watching the webcast and it was losing sound and glitching like crazy so I didn't catch it. Could someone repeat it to me? Just curious...
151 MCIGuy : He and Tom Brokaw were discussing long, tedious flights when he cracked about a SIN-JFK trip on a "slow Airbus", not as big a deal as is being made o

158 Post contains images CURLYHEADBOY : I think I'd just add my silly comment... Beautiful machine, looks stunning, so hats off to Boeing for building such a good looking airplane.
159 SQ773 : Something worries me, IMO, the A350 looks too similar to the 787. The tail and the wings are too similar.
160 Mir : 6 feet isn't substantially longer. Yet the fuselage is substantially wider, which is why it looks a little chubby. Which isn't to say it's ugly, but

164 OA260 : I like LOT and Avianca the best.
165 VirginFlyer : They are similar aircraft designed for similar capabilities. Given our ability to optimise a design in this day and age, I'd be worried if they didn'
166 Bh4007 : IMO, the appearance of the 787 makes it look smaller than it is; in photos it looks like a big A320 but when you see how big the people are; you reali
167 Legoguy : I agree. I believe the larger cockpit windows and passenger windows make the aircraft look like a narrow body. Still, it's a great looking machine. T
