Japan Airlines takes delivery of it’s first Boeing 787’s

Boeing delivered the first two 787 Dreamliner’s to Japan Airlines today. The two aircraft are the first examples of the type to be powered by the fuel saving GEnx engines from General Electric. Japan Airlines will utilize the aircraft on routes from Tokyo to Boston and San Diego starting later this year and will expand service as more aircraft are delivered. JAL has a total of 45 787’s on order, including 20 of the lengthened 787-9 types. Both aircraft left the Boeing Factory in Everett, Washington this afternoon with one example headed for each of Tokyo’s main airports, Narita and Haneda. All Nippon Airways, also of Japan, took delivery of the first 787’s a few months ago and is utilizing them on flights based out of Tokyo.
