I believe AC is scheduled to receive its first of 14 B787-8s in 2010. AC planned to extend the life of its B763ERs by refurbishing the interior and adding winglets to increase performance and efficiency. The XM program is slowly under way, but it would appear the B777 "style" interior and winglets have been dropped from the program.
The B787 delivery slots maybe fast disappearing as some large orders may be placed later this year. When is AC planning on firming some of its B787 options? The 14 787s on orders would only replace a small portion of AC's B767 international fleet. Milton also expressed interest in the B787-9 as a replacement for the A333s. It would seem like the bulk of the B767s will be flying past 2012, or does AC plan to reduce its fleet of B767 sized aircraft in the future?
The B787 will look pretty sharp in AC's colours.
