We talk a lot about the 787 passenger experience. But here’s a stat that shows you just what the 787 means to our airline customers.

ANA took delivery of its 50th 787 today, and relayed this message to media in attendance. Compared to 767, the Dreamliner saves the airline $98 million a year in fuel. That’s an endorsement that speaks directly to any airline’s bottom line.
ANA also says its passenger surveys show travelers most often mention the calmness of the 787 and its quiet takeoff—as well as the larger windows.
As the launch customer of the 787, ANA has been with us all the way on what has sometimes been a very long road. We couldn’t be happier to see them take their 50th Dreamliner. Congratulations!
