Boeing and British Airways Finalize Contract for 24 787 Dreamliners

Boeing and London-based British Airways have finalized an order for eight Boeing 787-8s and 16 787-9s, raising the total number of 787s ordered worldwide from 766 to 790 and taking the 787 order book past the 787th mark. The order is valued at $4.4 billion at list prices. British Airways also placed options for 18 787s and purchase rights for an additional 10.
British Airways first announced its selection of the 787 Dreamliner as a key element of its long-haul fleet renewal last September. The carrier also announced in September that it will power its 787s with the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000.

    It has always been my opinion that Boeing produced superbly designed and engineered aircraft, but, that those aircraft always lacked the element if visual beauty.

    The Dreamliner 787 has broken all the old Boeing rules an is undoubtedly the most stunning commercial airliner in service today!
