Quoting flythere (Reply 8): The flight has just touched down at the HKG tarmac and warm welcoming is given!
Not a cold shower like usual when a new aircraft is visiting an airport?

Nice high windows! Still too narrow though......
I am looking forward to a first trip report. How was it concerning noise levels and humidity? Also behavior in turbulence (if occurred).
I am looking forward to my first 787 flight and see the extreme wing flex for myself.
There's still a long way to go before all the alliances deserve a star...

Wow! While I was always interested in aviation it was definitely the 7E7 project back when I was in high school that got me hooked for life. Amazing to see it finally put in service all these years later. Can't wait to get on one myself.

It's going to be nice looking out those windows without getting a crick in the neck or needing to wear sunglasses. That, 8 across and a quiet cabin would make those short 11 hour hops from EWR to HNL a lot more pleasant.

Quoting Avi8 (Reply 20): Boeing released their 3Q results and say that they expect to deliver about 15 787's this year. That's what I read I don't know how that's possible lol.
Hmm, I've heard a couple of rumors (from usually very reliable sources though) that NH will receive 4 more 787's in December, and that's it for this year. No 787's yet for JL, AI, LAN or RAM, all pushed into next year

well...as the old saying goes...better late than never!
It is really great to finally see the 787 in service and may it travel countless miles in the coming decades!
Like a lot of us here, I've been keeping track of the 787 pretty much since its inception, its been a long time coming!
@ posts above...like who cares..new era...next step...whatever, everyone calls it something a bit different, they are expressions, so chill out and smile, there's a new silver bird in the sky!!
