Flightaware has the flight going almost 8,000 miles non-stop!! Does anyone know what engine version is on BOE3? Was this the longest flight to date for the 787?

BOE3 has RR Trent-1000 engines. The GEnx engined birds are BOE5 and BOE6, I believe.

I was wondering what version of the RR Trent 1000. The initial baseline?

A route that length should be within the normal operating parameters of the 787, so a lightly loaded 787 with only the crew on board would have no problem on the route. Emirates is going to operate SEA-DXB with a 77W.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Quoting ual747-600 (Thread starter):

No, they've had multiple 18h+ flights for the ETOPS stuff. The first one was Guam-Seattle (with a lot of route deviation), the second was Seattle-Seattle with a waypoint over Barbados. Seattle-Dubai may be the longest great-circle route they've done yet but I'm not positive.

While 3 was still in the air en route to Dubai, 1 landed in Auckland. Although Auckland is slightly closer great-circle, it may have actually been a longer flight due to routing and winds. Tailwinds going east were really good on Friday.

Probably Package A engines. I believe only ZA004 has the Package B.

Correct. However, the longest so far is still the Guam-Seattle flight by way of Weno Island, Honolulu and Los Angeles at 7,655mi. Seattle-Dubai is 7,393.

Interestingly, the Guam-Seattle flight did run 18 hours and had over 10,000mi flown thanks to extra pattern flying off Seattle's coast.

Just for clarity regarding the subject of this thread, the plane in Sydney is ZA001. ZA003 is still in Dubai.
