Inside the pages of Flightglobal’s 787 Special Report


NEW YORK — I’m waiting for my flight to Tokyo at John F. Kennedy International Airport and I wanted to share Flightglobal’s 787 service entry special report. The package, but together by Flight journalists John Croft, Siva Govindasamy, Michael Gubisch, Max Kingsley-Jones, Mary Kirby, Steve Trimble, Niall O’Keeffe and myself, covers many elements of the program. The supplement, which was published last week, looks both forward and backward at how Boeing arrived at this moment, tracing the origins of the aircraft and its supply chain and examining what the future holds for the first majority composite jetliner in the cabin, the market and in operation.

There’s also a companion website that goes with the package, that includes even more content, as well as an interactive cutaway of ANA’s first 264-seat 787-8, which enters service on Wednesday between Tokyo Narita and Hong Kong.
