Higher demand for Boeing’s 787 Dreamliners

A total of 15 787-9 Dreamliners valued at $4.2 billion per current list prices, have been ordered by two undisclosed airlines. This reflects the broad market demand for the Dreamliners, and that it is the fastest-selling widebody jet in history to eclipse 1,400 orders when commitments are finalized.


Built with lightweight composite materials and powered by advanced engines, the 787 Dreamliner family lowers operating costs by more than 20 percent compared to previous airplanes, and nearly 10 percent compared to today’s competing jets. At 206 feet (63 meters), the 787-9 extends the Dreamliner family in terms of capacity and range. The airplane can fly 290 passengers, in a typical two-class configuration, up to 7,635 nautical miles (14,140 km), making it the longest-range 787.
