Boeing has announced their much-delayed 787 Dreamliner airplane will finally make its maiden flight later this year. It’s still just a test flight, meaning customers who have been patiently waiting for the reported 840 orders to be filled will have to continue waiting. The plane is roughly two years behind schedule.

The 787-8 Dreamliner will carry 210 – 250 passengers on routes of 7,650 to 8,200 nautical miles, while the 787-9 Dreamliner will carry 250 – 290 passengers on routes of 8,000 to 8,500 nautical miles. A third 787 family member, the 787-3 Dreamliner, will accommodate 290 – 330 passengers and be optimized for routes of 2,500 to 3,050 nautical miles.

In addition to bringing big-jet ranges to mid-size airplanes, the 787 will provide airlines with more fuel efficiency, resulting in exceptional environmental performance. The airplane will use 20 percent less fuel for comparable missions than today’s similarly sized airplane. It will also travel at speeds similar to today’s fastest wide bodies, Mach 0.85. Airlines will enjoy more cargo revenue capacity.
