I’m still salty about having to pay a checked bag fee, but if an airline asked me if I would fork over extra cash for my plane to do this, my immediate answer would be YESPLEASETAKEMYMONEYNOW.
ANA has been pumping Star Wars fans up for three airliners in Star Wars-themed liveries for months now, and the moment has finally come to see the first!
Boeing is preparing to make a big splash with its stretched Dreamliner at the Paris Air Show this year. How do they plan on doing this? The old school way, by putting the 300,000 pound beast through its paces in front of a huge crowd, max performing the carbon fiber jet like it was an F-15, as seen in the video below:
A British airline passenger has pleaded guilty for "going nuts" onboard a Thomson Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner and punching one of the plane's magical windows, which dims at the push of a button, instead of using a traditional pull-down shade.
When an airline begins service with a new plane to a new destination, it's customary for the airport fire trucks to come out and welcome the flight with a water canon salute. But when Japan Airlines brought their Boeing 787 to Tampa for the first time last week, something went very wrong.
Sometimes good things happen. I travel pretty often and for some odd reason I couldn't get the flight between Colorado and Baltimore that I normally take. The only flights available were from Colorado to Houston and then to Baltimore. It seemed like a drag, until I noticed the equipment: 787-8 Dreamliner. United only…
Late Monday night, Air New Zealand's first Boeing 787-9 rolled out of the paint hangar in Everett, Washington, sporting a new "all-black" livery. Reflecting off the wet tarmac and factory lights, glistening from the falling Seattle rain, she is truly a sight to behold.
A Boeing 787 Dreamliner continued the model's string of bad luck yesterday when it burst into flames on the tarmac at London Heathrow Airport yesterday. The good news was that it was unoccupied at the time. And now there's a little bit more, kinda: investigators say it wasn't the battery's fault.
On Sunday, November 4th at 7:20 AM, United flew their first passenger flight with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. It was a smashing success and a total sham all at once.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner has been in service for no more than a few months and already some Boeing test pilot has tagged the American Northwest like an Etch-a-Sketch with a 787 logo. Damn hooligans.
A Boeing 787 Dreamliner — the sixth 787 Boeing's made so far — took off from Boeing Field in Seattle in December 6, 2011. Yesterday, it landed in Dhaka, Bangladesh, having flown 10,710 nautical miles to set a distance record for a commercial jet of its weight. It's also a victory, of sorts, for carbon fiber.
The extensive use of composite materials makes the Boeing 787 one of the most advanced commercial aircraft ever built. And while it's already been approved for flight, safety officials are concerned about the long term viability of those materials, which are now being used in the aircraft's wings and fuselage.
