Having just rolled out of the paint hanger, the 787-9 will complement and extend the 787 family, offering airlines the ability to grow routes opened with the 787-8.
“With the fuselage stretched by 20 feet (6 meters), the 787-9 will carry 40 more passengers an additional 300 nautical miles (555 kilometres), with 20 percent less fuel use and 20 percent fewer emissions than similarly sized airplanes,” stated Boeing in a press release.
“The 787-9 leverages the visionary design of the 787-8, offering the features passengers prefer such as large, dimmable windows, large stow bins, modern LED lighting, higher humidity, a lower cabin altitude, cleaner air and a smoother ride.”
