The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a long range, mid-sized, wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner developed by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It seats 210 to 330 passengers, depending on variant. Boeing states that it is the company’s most fuel-efficient airliner and the world’s first major airliner to use composite materials for most of its construction.

  1. It's not exactly surprising that it doesn't have FAA certification yet, clearly you no nothing on the topic. I don't know how many times I have to tell you this but Airbus REJECTED an offer from ge of the genx. Surprisingly, you are right that ge won't make a new engine (competition with the 777-300ER) but Airbus don't want a GE engine now as the A350 is already selling faster than the 777 did at this time in it's life so Airbus no longer feel the need to offer two engines to sell more planes.

  2. I always wondered how you could see into the future because, last time I checked (2 seconds ago), RR are replacing all gearboxes on the affected aircraft. I'm sure we've had this argument before but; the A350 DOES HAVE ENGINES, the trent xwb. Also, GE tried to make a competitive engine but couldn't. And finally, ANA would never take GE engines as ANA does short haul flights which better suit the RR as it has the best and most efficient climbing abilities by far.

  3. Agree. A380 is a problem-plagued disaster: it will never turn a profit and it's poor design, engineering and manufacture mean unnecessary risk for the flying public.
    Meanwhile Rolls Royce must deal with the latest smear on its reputation, following the recent grounding of half of ANA's 787s due to manufacturing defects discovered in their RR Trent 1000 turbofans.
    I've heard nothing about ANA switching to GE. Are you sure?
    No doubt JAL is smiling, having made the right choice > GEnx-1B

  4. "those aren't GE they're RollsRoyce"
    ANA selected the RR Trent engines for their B787-8s. Most B787s will use the General Electric GEnx engines

  5. @mylesandpennie same here but im still a huge fan of the b777 with those 6 wheel landing gear i always wonder if it had only 4 how it would really look probably weird looking haha
