First in the Americas

Here’s a great way to end the week as we head into a long holiday weekend. LAN Airlines celebrated its first 787— becoming the first airline in the Americas to receive the Dreamliner. The first cities that will be served by LAN’s fleet of 787s will be Santiago, Buenos Aires, Lima, Los Angeles, Madrid and Frankfurt. Enjoy the photos and have a safe weekend.

This may be one of my favorite livery colors and looks great on the B787.

I was hoping that you would report the delivery of Air India's first 787. I was checking your blog with excitement but didn't find anything!
