     AIR NEW ZEALAND BECOMES 787-9 LAUNCH CUSTOMER
    Boeing will deliver the first 787-9 Dreamliner to Air New Zealand in December
    2010. Boeing and ANZ, along with engine-maker Rolls-Royce, held a ceremonial
    signing in which ANZ converted its original order for four 787-8 airplanes to four
    787-9 airplanes. The 787-9 is capable of carrying 250-290 passengers on routes of
    8,600 to 8,800 nautical miles (15,900-16,300 kilometers). The 787-9 is a slightly
    bigger version of the 787-8 and has a list price of $183 million. Air New Zealand
    selected the Trent 1000 engine to power its 787-9s.

    Since its April 2004 launch, the Dreamliner program has booked 393 orders and
    commitments from 29 customers; 350 of those are firm orders worth roughly $52
    billion at current list prices, making the 787 the most successful new airplane in
    Boeing history.                                                                                           Image: Boeing
