All Nippon Airways (ANA) on Wednesday has received its first Boeing 787 “Dreamliner,” the composite carbon aircraft that the American plane maker is fielding to keep its European rival Airbus out of its best market.
Hundreds of aviation fans gathered in Tokyo’s Haneda Airport to welcome the first twin-engine jetliner. The Dreamliner has a smooth touch down at around 9:04 a.m. in Tokyo – after three long years of delays.
During those years, Boeing has lost ground to Airbus in almost all of markets, including the United States. The European aircraft manufacturer outpaced Boeing for the past nine years.
The American aircraft manufacturer has a backlog of 821 orders, with nearly 10 percent going to Japan.
But with the arrival of the new Dreamliner, Boeing is confident that it will keep Japan as its fortress, dominating 90 percent of the country’s market share. In fact, the flag-carrier Japan Airlines has kept Boeing as its only distributor, while ANA has already phased out some of its ageing single-aisle Aibus A320.
The new Boeing 787 twin-engine aircraft offers passengers a more comfortable flight, while giving its owners more fuel-efficiency, which is one of the biggest requirements in the fiercely competitive business of air travel.
The only problem now is Boeing’s commitment to have a steady stream of flights from assembly lines in Seattle to its loyal costumers in Japan.
