 Boeing 787 - Wikipedia
Die Boeing 787 (ehemals Boeing 7E7) ist ein in der Entwicklung befindliches mittelgroßes Langstrecken-Großraumflugzeug des US-Flugzeugherstellers Boeing, welches besonders effizient sein und 200-300 Passagiere befördern können soll.
Boeing sieht nun die Zukunft eher in mittelgroßen Modellen als in Jumbos, mit denen auch von weniger großen Flughäfen abseits der Luftfahrt-Drehkreuze direkt, ohne Zwischenstopp Lang- und Ultra-Langstrecken geflogen werden können (Point-to-Point).
Der Kabinendruck in der Boeing 787 wird dem Luftdruck in einer Höhe von 1830 Metern über dem Meer entsprechen (600 Meter weniger als in herkömmlichen Flugzeugen).

 Boeing unveils 787 Dreamliner; Airbus sends congrats - USATODAY.com
Boeing has won more than 600 orders from customers eager to hold the jet maker to its promise that the midsize, long-haul jet will burn less fuel, be cheaper to maintain and offer more passenger comforts than comparable planes flying today.
The 787, Boeing's first all-new jet since airlines started flying the 777 in 1995, will be the world's first large commercial airplane made mostly of carbon-fiber composites, which are lighter, more durable and less prone to corrosion than aluminum.
Boeing hired former NBC "Nightly News" anchor Tom Brokaw to serve as master of ceremonies for the 787 premiere — held, probably not coincidentally, on 7-08-07 — which was broadcast live on the Internet and on satellite television in nine languages to more than 45 countries.

 Boeing 787 Demand Strong, Stretch Version Planned
Boeing has decided to proceed with an expanded version of its strong-selling 787 Dreamliner jet, bowing to pressure from airlines, the company said on Monday.
Boeing had been reluctant to build a larger version of the plane, which would seat about 300 passengers in three classes, because of concern it would cannibalize sales from its older 777-200 ER jet.
Boeing is talking to "around a dozen" airlines about the plane, which would have the same 8,600 to 8,800 mile range of a previously planned 250-seat version, he said.

Boeing is calling the event a "roll out," and that's pretty much all it is. After it's "rolled out," the plane will most likely be rolled away.
Still, while we understand Boeing's desire to gloat (the 787 didn't even drop in at this week's high-profile Paris air show), curious types want to know what it is about this plane that has the airline industry in such a rapturous swoon.
While Boeing bean counters are dancing a jig over the savings at the pump, consumers are gushing over some of the consumer friendly features of the 787, namely the plane's gust-suppression technology, which is a fancy way of saying that the Dreamliner is the first plane in history that is likely to be turbulence-free.

 The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Boeing cuts 787 wireless system
Boeing has abandoned its plan to install a wireless inflight-entertainment system on the 787 Dreamliner, one it had touted earlier as saving weight and complexity by eliminating wires.
Boeing made the decision earlier this month because of performance problems with the technology and the lack of bandwidth spectrum in some parts of the world.
One Boeing engineer who works on the 787 inflight-entertainment systems — and who asked not to be identified as he wasn't authorized to speak publicly — said the decision to switch back to a wired system was not a shock.

 IEEE Spectrum: Winner: Carbon Takeoff   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In the 787, Boeing is using mostly carbon-fiber composites, which in smaller quantities are found in items such as high-end bicycle frames and the fenders of expensive sports cars.
For Boeing, still recovering from a 2003 government-contract scandal and the forced departures of two consecutive chief executives following accusations of unethical conduct, the composite strategy is part of a bold bid to regain leadership of the US $50-billion-a-year worldwide market for commercial planes.
The two-engine 787 will be able to fly long routes previously possible only for jumbos, a capability that analysts say is proving appealing to today's cost-obsessed airlines.
