Setting a benchmark. After 4. I don't even think we fully realized the scope of how much it would change expectations for commercial aircraft," says Boeing director of product marketing Tom Sanderson, who has been with the program almost since its beginning. Since that first flight, the has paradoxically been both a dream and nightmare for its customers. It has enabled more than new direct routes, carried more than million airline passengers, and completed more than 2.
Before Covid hit, the was flying more than 1, routes worldwide. Boeing's smaller aircraft vision is the clear winner over the Airbus A superjumbo, which Airbus called time on in Very few people want to actually go to Frankfurt, and most people who used to go through Narita or Heathrow were actually going somewhere else.
This jet took them directly to where they wanted to go, which definitely helped stimulate international traffic," says Richard Aboulafia, vice president of analysis at Teal Group. The was a resounding sales success as the fastest-selling wide-body aircraft in history, outselling its competitors the Airbus Aneo and A As of August , the program had amassed 1, orders for its three variants, carrying up to passengers depending on cabin layout, with range of up to 7, nautical miles.
It has replaced thirsty older aviation stalwarts like the and first-generation Airbus As, while hastening the demise of larger As, s and early s. An eye-popping 1, Dreamliners have been delivered in just a decade between two final assembly lines at Charleston, South Carolina, and Everett, Washington. The was the first Boeing-designed commercial aircraft ever built outside Puget Sound, Washington, though now it's only assembled in South Carolina.
With more than 80 customers since launch, t he backlog stands at , adjusted for ASC accounting standards. The plane proved its value as one of the primary aircraft used as international traffic recovered during the Covid pandemic," says long-time analyst Scott Hamilton of Leeham Company. The Dreamliner has been the most utilized wide-body through the pandemic, based on the percentage of its fleet operating versus placed in storage versus its direct competitors.
August , more than any other commercial airplane type. Many operators utilized their Dreamliners to exclusively carry freight at the height of the Covid pandemic, bringing in much-needed revenue as air-freight demand surged. Chris Sloan checks out the flight deck during the launch event. The dreams nightmares are made of. A little over a year after entering service, in the first two weeks of January , two s experienced thermal runaway events with its lithium-ion batteries , one of which resulted in an electrical fire.
One of the aircraft flying in Japan was forced to make an emergency landing. The other fortunately had yet to depart from Boston. No passengers were seriously injured, nor were the aircraft significantly damaged. The new plane's reputation was damaged.
All 50 of the world's s operating in revenue service at that time were grounded for over three and a half months. Once modifications were made to the battery cells, there have been no serious mishaps since. Vendor, supply chain, and manufacturing issues, particularly with the composite fuselage, had bedeviled the in its early days of development, but have surprisingly reared their head again years later.
Ignominious for such a mature program that peaked at 14 aircraft rolling per month rolling off dual assembly lines. Current deliveries have been mostly suspended over the last year because of quality control programs involving microscopic tolerances of fasteners joining fuselage barrels together, and additional issues with electrical systems and windscreens. This has resulted in around undelivered s subject to rework.
The company's cash flow has been impacted by the billions, and turning the once profitable program on a unit basis into a big money loser once again. Once delayed these undelivered airframes are subject to cancellation by their customers, and significant compensation. The MAX and problems have only fed off each other. And what's overlooked is the knock-on effect in product development. Boeing's distraction by crisis after crisis has given Airbus a commanding lead in the heart of the narrow-body market.
Boeing's Sanderson isn't defending the delays, but stresses that "All s in service and in our inventory are perfectly safe to fly. Dreaming of the future. The prospects for the future of the program are generally positive.
Hamilton concedes "The is a good airplane" and sees it being further improved with new technology, such as new engines as with past Boeing programs. Aboulafia sees the biggest threat to the as, ironically, the fragmentation that drove its success: "The biggest risk to future orders is new, more capable single-aisle jets, particularly the A Neo. On August 13, , a Boeing - 8 aircraft was certified by Rolls-Royce.
In , after receiving certification, Boeing increased the production rate of Boeing to 12 aircraft per month at assembly lines in Everett and Charleston for two years. From the end of , production speed will be reduced from 14 to 12 aircraft per month due to the China-United State trade war. Less than a month later, the airline received the second Boeing By the end of , there were 39 airlines operating Boeing on routes with an average length of 5, km.
As of August , there are Boeing aircraft in service including Boeing aircraft , Boeing aircraft , Boeing 29 aircraft and orders. The airline made its first flight on April 3, As of April , Boeing aircraft have been produced. Cabin width: 18 ft 0 in 5,49 m , External width: 18 ft 11 in 5,77 m , Height: 19 ft 6 in 5,94 m.
