Boeing’s 787 was called Dreamliner before it became 787. Why?
Take a look at these pictures and decide it yourself:
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 very 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.
