Boeing has announced the first five customers for the 787-10, with a total of over 100 aircraft between the 5 customers.

The five customers are:

British Airways - 12
Singapore - 30
United - 20
Air Lease - 30
GECAS - 10

The 787-10 will be a three class, 320 seat aircraft, with deliveries planned to start in 2018. Unlike the 787-9, which required several changes to the wing, and internal design, the 787-10 adds two fuselage plugs, and a 777 style semi-levered landing gear.


Five customers - British Airways, Singapore Airlines and United Airlines, plus lessors Air Lease and GECAS - have launched the Boeing 787-10 today at the Paris air show, with combined orders for more than 100 of the variant.

Singapore Airlines has ordered 30 787-10s, BA 12, and United 20. The United aircraft are comprised of 10 "incremental" aircraft and 10 conversions of existing orders.

Air Lease has ordered 30 787-10s, together with three 787-9s. GECAS yesterday committed to 10 787-10s.

The launch of the three-class, 320-seat 787-10, of which first deliveries are targeted for 2018, completes the family of widebodies Boeing initiated nearly a decade ago with a relatively simple stretch of the 5.49m (18ft) stretch of the 290-seat 787-9.

And in other news.........

1 week after it's inaugural flight, comes it's very first loaded emergency landing for technical problems! (slaps forehead)


Just one week after the much-heralded inaugural flight of the Denver-to-Tokyo nonstop flight began, a Tokyo-bound 787 aircraft made an emergency landing in Seattle less than four hours after taking off from Denver.
United Airlines flight 139 took off at 1:19 p.m. MDT from Denver International Airport headed for Narita International Airport but was diverted because of an oil-filter problem at 4:25 p.m. just as the plane reached the Pacific Ocean north of Vancouver, British Columbia.

You know, I hadn't even done a search to top post a thread on this myself. You're such an Aircraft symbol on ATS for your expertise, I figured the most recent thread on the 787 would be yours anyway. lol...

This thing is cursed.. That's what it is. Airbus put the whammy on it or gave it the evil eye or something. They just can't catch a break ...or a successful week, it seems. Ouch!

Yes, but at least this time it's an oil problem, and not a battery problem. That's an improvement.

This means the 787 has about 1000 orders and it first flew in 2009. The A330 has ~1250 orders and first flew in 1992. And the 767 has 1108 orders and first flew in 1981. After all these initial delays are sorted out, it will be a very successful program.
