The largest airline alliance with 787 operations right now is the Star Alliance, accounting for 62% of the 787 seats offered – while oneworld follows at 11%. The remainder of the 787 operations are done by non-aligned carriers – while SkyTeam remains the only alliance without a 787 operation at the moment. However it is worth noting that this landscape is set to change significantly, as Qatar Airways – one of the potentially largest 787 operators in future – joins the oneworld alliance, and other aligned airlines such as British Airways and Air France-KLM take delivery of their orders.

The above rankings are for the routes. But who is leading when it comes to the operating carrier? Qatar or ANA? Be ready to be surprised. Watch this space tomorrow, for Where is the 787 Flying Right Now – Part 2. Be sure to check The Networker.
