Just a quick question?
I recall reading somewhere that the 787-8 will enter service before the -3 model; is this correct? It seems a bit surprising, because usually it's the baseline model (which I assume the -3 will be) which enters service first.
From what I understand, JAL and ANA will introduce their -8s in 2008, with the -3s to come the following year.
Amazing to think that the 787 will be making its first flight next year! It only seems like yesterday that it was launched and given what's going on with the 350, you have to say that things look pretty bright for the '87.
