Title says it all, which (future) 787 operators have already announced routes on which they'll deploy the 787?
I think CO has announced Auckland-Houston, and NH has announced Tokyo-Panama.
Any others? I don't mean rumours or "I know somebody at airline XX who has told me" but routes that airlines have publicly announced. Irrespective of whether they really will fly them when they finally receive the 787.
The above two are certainly "surprising choices" in the sense that they are off the big intercontinental trunk routes, but that somehow is the point of the 787, isn't it? I hope there will be more such routes that from today's perspective look "odd".
Has this been confirmed officially by the airline? I thought it was another one of those that fell into the "mean rumours or "I know somebody at airline XX who has told me" category, along with NH's supposed NRT-DEN route. . .

This has not been officially announced, but its included in Hainan's strategic plan for next 5 years.
PEK-YYZ,PEK-SVO and PEK-DXB-LAD will be operated by 787 as soon as they are delivered, since their A346 is creating very low profit for them . And Hainan is planning to return A346 when their 787 start coming in.
I was thinking the same thing jgw, seems like an odd routing. It's going to be great to finally start seeing the 787 on revenue flights.......whenever that will be. Hopefully someday one will fly into PDX regularly.

When Hainan started BJS/SEA, they stated the route would be flown with the 787 when they took delivery (currently operates with the A330). I don't know if that's still the plan, but haven't heard otherwise.

Not anymore... they will just keep 332 on this route

CO still plans to start LOS service this year. However, they will use a 777 until they get their 787's. It is possible that they might keep the T7 on the route due to oil industry related cargo. That is strictly my speculation however.
: LAN purchased 26 B787s and will lease 6 B787s. They will be deployed on a variety of routes including: UIO/GYE-MAD LIM-MAD SCL-MAD LIM-LAX LIM-SFO SCL
: Yes, that would seem a sure bet. However, I would be upset but not surprised to see these long-awaited planes be placed on routes that can already be

: I have heard lots of rumours , but no announcements , would you have a link to an actual announcement ?
: I think it was the goal of CO to have started with the 788 for IAH-LOS and then gradually bump up to the 772. I think they will keep it a 772.
: Atrhens, Rome with Jetstar and I would guess SYD/BNE/MEL to PER
: I will not hold my breath for ATH, the OZ-Greece market is extremely well served by the likes of EK, SQ, EY, TG
: MEL-ATH is 14,910 km, therefore not doable in a 787 with a full load. It goes the same for FCO as well. Thenoflyzone
: All operated by Jetstar Asia, through SIN.
: Does Jetstar Asia even have 787s on order? I thought the 15 787s that Jetstar has ordered will stay with them? Even so, why doesn't Jetstar Asia just
: YUL is an interesting case. Unlike BOS, it is a hub for a major airline. If the demand is as large as you say it is, it seems like it should have fli
