Boeing’s 787 was called Dreamliner before it became 787. Why?

Take a look at these pictures and decide it yourself:

The Dreamliner
OK, A 380 looks good, too. So why is Dreamliner really a dream aircraft for an airline? Its size is the same as 767 – a small plane among the big ones. Dreamliner can be operated on a much lower cost though as the new engines burn 25% less fuel than 767. he medium sized plane can be easily loaded both on short and long haul and due to low operation costs, it can be very cost effective destinations and for luxury purposes mostly. Today I was still a little bit for the airline. A veryThe Dreamliner basic proof of this idea is the fact Ryanair has already ordered 130 of these and apparently they will change their complete fleet and use only 787s. A 380s were ordered only by airlines with massive long haul surprised to read it in the news that Aeroflot ordered Dreamliners. Not because it wasn’t a logical decision. Rather because I thought it was unreachably expensive for an Eastern European airline, but apparently it is not the fact. Aeroflot is getting prepared for the upcoming competition in Russia. They joined Sky Team, one of the 3 main alliances in the world and now they are renewing their fleet. They are still state-owned, which is always a huge wieght an airline needs to carry, but I really hope they will cope with the new business situation.

    Aeroflot is a good example, but I believe they will also buy Airbus (A350), probably the same number as many 787’s they have purchased. It is also part of their huge weight carried due to the state ownership. Russia as a state wants to be friends with both the USA and the EU as well, so they will force their leading airline buy some planes from both manufacturers, I’m sure! And then Boeing is also due to provide development support for the new Russian passenger plane, the Sukhoi Superjet 100, which was probably also decided on the political level (at least such a decision was also required for the partnership to start…).

    Why doesn’t Aeroflot buy from Tuplov? They still produce fine planes, even if the airlines don’t maintain them properly and they develop a bad name.
