On the July eighth the Boeing Company will reveal its newest passenger jet in 13 years, the 787 Dreamliner. It is billed as the hottest-selling and most technologically advanced commercial jet ever. Boeing already has more than 600 orders for planes to 45 airline customers, worth an estimated $100 billion in sales. What makes this aircraft so special? Boeing is claiming that the 787 Dreamliner will change how people fly.
The Boeing Company is betting its future on its new 787 Dreamliner. Unlike the last generation of jumbo jets, like the Airbus A-380 which seats 550 passengers, the 787 is smaller. The Dreamliner is designed to carry up to 330 people, and to access regional airports. And it is lighter, made from composite materials, primarily plastic.
Boeing's main competitor, Airbus, may be at a disadvantage today, but it is not standing idly by. It is also developing a new generation of airliners. Airbus's Barbara Kracht says, in an industry that is growing at a rate of 4.8 percent a year, there is room for both aerospace giants in the marketplace.
While sales for the 787 Dreamliner are brisk and Boeing's immediate future looks promising, there are still concerns. Unforeseen production delays would cut profits and the airplane has yet to actually fly.
