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.
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.
