Is this part of the 787 "World Tour"? Does anyone have the rest of the itinerary for the tour? Is it coming to TPE?

Edit: Spelling error.

Cool 
Does anybody know what time it'll be arriving/leaving and if there are any tours of the inside?
I've got exams all next week so it needs to be before or after

Qantas yesterday released 1200 tickets for viewings to their staff, with more to come a 2pm today. The first round was snapped up in 15 minutes, and staff are able to book one ticket for a half hour timeslot through the day.

Would be a massive shame if Qantas is just treating their staff to the opportunity to see this aircraft up close...

This is the most secretive public tour I've ever seen! I wonder why we can't find any information on this tour?
My posts/replies are strictly my opinion and not that of any company, organization, or Southwest Airlines.

It had been reported in local papers a couple of weeks ago.
It is not a tour for the public, it is to show to Boeings customers and they are in turn showing their staff, same as when the 380 came down and when the manufacturers have done previous demo tours.

Yes, but Qantas has said that they want to show this plane off to the public as well in past reports... I seem to remember their spokesperson talking about arranging open days and such...
