Quoting 474218 (Reply 4): Monday September 26, 2011 is the delivery date of ANA's (the launch customer) first 787?
The aircraft was formally delivered to ANA yesterday, Sunday, Sept 25th, when all the paperwork and money exchanged hands. The aircraft as of then is owned by ANA not Boeing. On Monday is only the party, and on Tuesday ANA will fly her home.
Plus every other JQ route since they're sending their A332s back to QF as the 788s arrive -- they will eventually be 787 only for International. They will also gain 5-6 frames overall so we should see some new routes for them out of SIN (FCO? ATH? ADL?)
With who? NH? If so, there's been very little action on that front. DIA folks reached out to ANA a while back but as BoeingGuy said, it's been reported here that ANA has had repeated talks with the people who run SJC. One meeting very recently. I wouldn't make that bet on DEN.
With UA? Maybe, but probably not next year. It's hard for me to see DEN getting a ton of new UA international service anyway with 5 other better served international gateways to funnel traffic to.

Quoting fpetrutiu (Reply 17): I am still thinking the 787 will eventually make it'spresence felt in MCO. A few years down the line, but if the economics span out, it will be a great tourist transporter.
Especially to thinner deep South American markets than GRU, like GIG or EZE or SCL* with Latam. However, like you indicated, I don't see these coming anytime soon.

The poster-child city for the Dreamliner is SAN.
Depending on the final performance numbers Boeing establishes for their new baby, I am very willing to bet that the Route Development team at SDIA/SDCRAA will be all over several foreign flags (and, SJC aside, I'd bet a buck that ANA is real high on the list!) as to how soon SAN will be scheduled for nonstop service to Asia. (And I'm pretty sure that they won't turn up their noses at more Europe or South America service either.)
There's also a pretty wide-held belief that BA will probably put a 787 on the SAN-LHR route when the plane joins their fleet -- that is unless the capacity of the T7 is needed for the passenger and cargo loads!
In any case, with the projected size of SAN's intercontinental markets, along with the terrain issues of Lindbergh Field, as I said, the 787 is exactly what San Diego is waiting for.

Quoting netjetsintl (Reply 21): so LAN is not planing on operating the 787 direct from SCL to Europe? Not even SCL- JFK/MIA??
Of course LAN will operate the B-787s to Europe and also Oceania from SCL (LAN has 32 B-787s on order). The GYE-MAD and LIM-MAD routes currently operate with the B-767-316ERs and are weight restricted. LAN may eventually operate SCL-LAX-SCL 3x weekly year-round as well with the B-787-8. Flights such as SCL-JFK would require two B-787s since LAN operates nightly departures in both directions. LAN SCL-MIA operates in a fashion in which the a/c arrives into MIA very early and turns around at MIA and operates routes, i.e. MIA-BOG-SCL, MIA-CCS-SCL, MIA-CCS-GYE-SCL, MIA-CUN-SCL, MIA-PUJ-SCL, etc.

BA could always add a second 787 out of SAN, at least on the busier days if slots are hard to find at LHR. I'm hoping for KLM 787's to AMS myself. The new terminal expansion will help open things up a bit too in 2013 as far as accommodating the 787's and international service. ANA to NRT will be tough. That flight is against the wind.
Uncle SAN at your service!
