But then I see carriers flying it on routes that don't make sense to me (Capacity and Range wise) like:

I think one of the more curious 'short' routes is BOS-LHR with the 787-9. We like seeing it at Logan and a favorite for spotters, but goes against the grain you speak of
|Quoting B747400ERF (Reply 50):|
747's and 777's are used by European carriers to fly to North America, so this topic makes no sense to me. In the past I have questioned how an airline like QR can afford to send their 787's on 5 hour routes but that is a different argument.
|Quoting AM744 (Reply 55):|
Exactly. Same thing for AM. There's no MEX-NRT, it's TIJ-NRT
|Quoting jfk777 (Reply 45):|
While many airlines are using 787-8 to replace A340 and 767 with some new flights like JAL to Boston. More ULH will happen when the 787-9 becomes more common, United's flight from LAX to MEL. Air Canada is the first airline showing us how they plan to us the 787-9 to Dubai and India nonstop from Toronto. AC is also replacing 777 on their YYZ to Haneda route but who knows AC could continue to surprise us with a route to say Johannesburg.
|Quoting B777LRF (Reply 11):|
The 787 is a modern and efficient 767, with a bit more space and range added, or it's a more modern and efficient 777 with a bit less space.

Interesting flightglobal analysis on Boeing 787 route network

Article is behind a paywall - can you summarize?
|Quoting GCT64 (Reply 44):|
BTW - on the "becoming more and more common" theme, as my flight at LHR taxied out yesterday there were three 787s in a line on the taxiway behind us (BA to CTU, VS to EWR and RJ to AMM) so they are already becoming pretty commonplace.
|Quoting Karadion (Reply 53):|
400 787 will be about next year in April 2016. 400 A350's on the other hand will be.....Mid-2019?
|Quoting sunrisevalley (Reply 40):|
A 789 with the same payload and flight time as a 77E burns >21% less fuel.

What kind of subsidy would be required for third tier airports to offer daily or 3/4 times a week service to Asia and Europe. As an example I could see Spokane greatly benefitting as a city and region if it had such service.
|Quoting frmrcapcadet (Reply 66):|
Hardly! You seem to be assuming that there would be no revenue at all.
|Quoting scbriml (Reply 47):|
just look at the total sales figures for the two specialist ULH planes (A345 & 77L). ULH is a niche market at best.
