Which 787 Routes Are Already "confirmed"?

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".

Is the "NYC" service to JFK or EWR? I hope its JFK. There are no airlines from Norway that go to JFK,but SAS used to operate flights to JFK.
Happy New Year to all by the way!

I just flew CO this week, and their inflight magazine route map shows IAH to AKL as future service. It also shows the 787 with their aircraft fleet information.

Sorry for being sarcastic.

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. . .

Quoting mozart (Thread starter):

   Correct.

They have also announced Houston-Lagos on the 787 as well. It was actually scheduled to begin 6 days prior to AKL (Nov. 10 vs. Nov. 16). That has obviously been postponed. . .

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.

BOS-NRT is virtually confirmed, not by any airline in particular, but once the 787 arrives it won't be long until it happens.

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.

LO will fly them, so I'm guessing at least:

WAW-ORD
WAW-JFK
WAW-EWR
WAW-YYZ


Should be confirmed, no?

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

AF and AM are fliying everyday 3 completely full 777. Is there any point to use a 787 on such a demanded route. IMHO, I would guess FCO, BCN and even LHR as a start?

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.

25 SCL767 : 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

28 kiwiandrew : I have heard lots of rumours , but no announcements , would you have a link to an actual announcement ?
29 aznmadsci : 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.
30 Flyingsottsman : Atrhens, Rome with Jetstar and I would guess SYD/BNE/MEL to PER
31 ODAFZ : I will not hold my breath for ATH, the OZ-Greece market is extremely well served by the likes of EK, SQ, EY, TG
32 thenoflyzone : 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
33 ManekS : All operated by Jetstar Asia, through SIN.
