And to add to others' comments re: the German person's comment; this aircraft is being made to replace the B767-300ER type, and is made to compete against the A330-200/A330-300. Now all Boeing has to do to compete with the A380 is to sell more B747-8's! Go Boeing!

Great picture! Look at the sweepback angle on the wings. The wingtips are in line with the rear exits! To the visitor from Germany: this plane is *not* in direct competition to the A380. The 787 and A380 are for completeley different route structures. Imagine a route that is long and thats popular - but will not fill a 747, A340, 777 etc. The 787 will be the answer to that. Also because of its small size it can use non-hub airports and connect them globally. And last of all its very efficient! Dreamliner & Whale are both great planes but designed with different route structures in mind.

I don't think the A380 is the intended competition here!

The perspective in this photo is well done and the colors balance well despite what seems like a generally low-light environment.

It is so small! I dont understand why and how Boeing wants to compete with this tiny aircraft to airbus' A380.
