Boeing Highlights 7E7 Dreamliner to Airlines

Boeing this week updated 80 airline representatives and eight financial institutions about its ultra-efficient 7E7 Dreamliner passenger airplane. Seen in the take-off position in a newly released rendition, the 7E7 Dreamliner will carry 200-250 passengers on routes between 7,800 and 8,300 nautical miles (14,500 to 15,400 kilometers) -- bringing big-jet ranges to mid-size airplanes. The new airplane will provide airlines with unmatched fuel efficiency -- using 20 percent less fuel for comparable missions than any other wide body airplane -- resulting in exceptional environmental performance. Passengers will also see improvements with the new airplane, from an interior environment with higher humidity to increased comfort and convenience.
