The B787 Dreamliner is a mid-size widebody, twin-engine jet airliner with its variants seating between 242 to 335 passengers in typical three-class seating configurations. The longest-range B787 variant can fly 14,800 to 15,700 kilometres (9,200 to 9,800 miles or 8,000 to 8,500 nautical miles).
The B787 commenced commercial service in 2011 and is the most fuel-efficient airliner in history with composite materials being the primary material in the construction of the aircraft’s fuselage, wings and other airframe components. The B787 was designed to be 20% more fuel efficient than the Boeing 767, which it was intended to replace. The B787 Dreamliner's distinguishing features include mostly electrical flight systems, swept wingtips, and noise-reducing chevrons on its engine nacelles.
The first B787 was launched in 2007 in a ceremony at Boeing's Everett factory in Washington with the airliner's maiden flight taking place in 2009. Numerous suppliers worldwide have been involved in a large-scale collaboration for the development and production of this aircraft. Final aircraft assembly takes place at Boeing’s Factory in Everett, Washington, and at their South Carolina factory in North Charleston, South Carolina.
