IATA AGM: Industry will closely watch ANA’s 787s

ANA 787 taxi 1.jpgThere will be a lot of attention focused on Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) when it introduces the 787 into service early next year.

It has been a long wait for the aircraft, and it will be a big deal for the airline industry especially if Boeing’s promised cost savings come through.

ANA will initially deploy the aircraft on its high yield routes (my best is on the first international flights going to China, although the carrier is saying that the west coast of the USA and Europe are on the cards).

Recovery is underway in the industry, but the new-age aircraft like the 787 will be needed as the airlines restructure their business and get rid of older generation aircraft like the Boeing 767s and Airbus A330s.

The 787 will be a welcome addition to the global airline industry.
