I found out from good sources that HM has changed thier order from the 787-800 to the -900 variant. New destinations will also include a city on mainland China too.

I've seen a job offer with Air Seychelles (don't know the kind of job). But they search for a person with a certificate for Boeing 767s and Airbus A330s (!!!). So will HM lease some A330s until the new B787-900s will join the fleet.

If I'm right, the first B787-900s will be delivered to Air New Zealand in January 2014.

Really sorry to nitpick, but it is 787-8 and -9 not -800 and -900. Sorry, it just gets to me.

The amazing tale of flight.

Isn't that just the marketing name? I expect the official designation will continue Boeing's traditional practice of using the customer code as the last 2 characters. For example, a BA 787-8 will officially be a 787-836. Can anyone confirm my understanding?

Not really. I suppose, to nitpick, one would have to type "787-8xx" to signify the customer codes.

Yes, some marketing guru (probably named Randy, but I can't honestly remember which of Boeing's Randys, or whether it was someone else) said that customer codes would continue, they'd simply be left off so that people didn't think there was a significant difference between a 787-824 and a 787-851, for example.

Would be nice to see A330's in HM colours. There may be some expansion of the network soon.
