Boeing has revealed a new rendering of a larger-variant 787, designated the 787-10X, during an investor presentation. It appears shorter than the last rendering of the aircraft, the 787-10 unveiled in 2007, when the twinjet would have been optimised to supplant the 777-200ER with comparable range and payload. The new rendering suggests no stretch of the forward 41 Section built by Spirit AeroSystems. Commercial Airplanes chief Jim Albaugh said the new twinjet - a simple fuselage stretch of the 787-9 - will include 43 more seats than its smaller 270-seat sister.
