Norwegian Has Taken Delivery Of Its First 787 (vid)

Sat Jun 29, 2013 12:06 pm

Norwegian has taken delivery of its first of 8 787 Dreamliners today and will according to plan, arrive at OSL, Norway Sunday afternoon.



Norwegian could finally welcome its first 787 Dreamliner today. The aircraft will operate the company’s long-haul routes between Scandinavia and the US and Asia.

“This is an important step towards strengthening our position in the market to ensure competitiveness in the future. Both our many customers and we at at Norwegian have been looking forward to this for a long time. I’m convinced that our customers will appreciate this brand new aircraft. Our goal is to operate the most environmentally friendly and cost-efficient fleet, something the Dreamliner will significantly contribute towards,” said Norwegian’s CEO Bjørn Kjos.

“This is a tremendous milestone for Norwegian, an industry leader in its market,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. “Norwegian gains a significant competitive advantage by operating its long-haul routes with this airplane.”

“We’re proudly celebrating delivery of ILFC’s first Boeing 787 Dreamliner to Norwegian Air Shuttle, our launch customer for the aircraft,” said ILFC Chief Executive Officer Henri Courpron.

I'm flying BCN-CPH-OSL several days after the last Dreamliner flight... What a shame!

Quoting KarelXWB (Reply 4):

Out of interest, cargo for what I wander? Ballast? Spares?

Quoting visualapproach (Reply 5):

Spares makes sense, why pay a cargo firm to deliver when you are already flying the route. Heavier items and larger volumes can go by sea container but a certain selection of critical supplies would need to be on hand right away in case of snags during initial operations

when will it have to be fixed for the first time?
