YES, finally! Congrats to Boeing and ANA, again. I am very excited this is finally happening. The revolution of flight is now here. I cannot wait to see her in service. This is the completion, or just the start depending on how you want to think of it, to many years worth of work and time. This is a positive for Boeing, and now things should start to turn around for them.

Thank you for all questions/comments,

laxboeingman

P.S. Thank you very much for the link.

That is a really neat website! I can't wait to get on that bird, as soon as they get familiar with the aircraft and start sending it on long-haul International I plan on booking my flight!

Does anyone know when and where the first 787's are going to be deployed?

I also have a very strong feeling that we will see some big announcements on new routes here soon.....

I agree with you. At long last, Boeing will deliver this aircraft. I'll bet Boeing and its workers are breathing a sigh of relief, along with ANA.

it is a bit crazy that the 787 will go to ANA before the 7478F will go to Cargolux. Boeing will have a live feed starting at 9a PST on Monday to cover the events and looks like another one for the delivery flight on Tuesday morning.

This is the best schedule of the events I could find. I was hoping to get a more detailed by the time on what is happening when, but unable to find it...

Quoting fpetrutiu (Reply 13):
In all fairness, today, it is the most advanced comercial airliner in the world. Can anyone argue that? Again, today..

First, Congrats to ANA for FINALLY getting the 787.. I hope they love it and enjoy it and that it proves a total success!

But I have to admit that I am not as exited as I was for the A380 when it first got delivered, since it doesn't have the wow factor of a technical marvel as the A380 does.. it simply just doesn't...

Nevertheless, I also don't think that anyone can deny that there are many advances on the 787 that makes it one of the next gen aircraft... BUT remember that it's still evolutionary, not revolutionary.... and besides, I wouldn't necessarily say that the 787 it's right now the most technically advance aircraft, because many could argued that if you count in all that the aircraft represents (all systems, all features, all what it has), and not just some particular aspects, the A380 could still be the more technically advance aircraft than the 787... that again is what I think... in fact, if you look at what aircraft has more advanced features provided to the customers at a commercial level, the A380 has features that the 787 will never match, so your assessment can be argued and perhaps is best to always stick to a personal opinion in regards to what represents the most advance aircraft.... the good thing is that we'll be flying better and more advance aircraft in the future to many more destinations!!

So I hope to fly the 787 soon... I just hope they get their deliveries going!! Once again, congrats to ANA!

PS: Does anyone have a list of production and delivery schedule for the 787, like the A380 production thread? If so, could you start one?

Finally - it will be great to see her in service! Does anybody know in what configuration this one is? ANA only has the international configuration with 46 J seats on their webpage, but somehow I think this one just has 2 rows of J, and the rest is Y?

Care to mention a few? Like window shades? Camera in the tail so it can take turns? Not sure what features are thinking about. Also, cabin altitude on the 787 is now about 6000ft as opposed to 8000ft on any other plane (including the A380), which should make it a lot more comforatble ride. Moslty built of carbon fiber, smooth fuselage that reduces drag (no rivets). HUD, active gust alieviation system (borrowed from the B2) which is the first time in civil use. Now, what does the A380 have so new that it is more advanced except its size. It is basically a 747 with new engines and the second floor extended all the way to the tail.

BTW, I love the A380, don't get me wrong. But today, I think the 787 is a real step forward.

Will do - might be my first TP ever  

But still not sure about configuration. Weird that even in F/J ANA doesn't let you reserve seats in advance online. And since there is no call center anywhere close to here (NZ/OZ), and the ANA number in Japan didn't work, I had to call the US call center. Relatively unfriendly person, and all I got was "all window seats are gone, I can give you 2C and 2H" - which still doesn't help me with the configuration, haha! Oh, and I think they only have J on the 787, but the ticket says "First"...
