Boeing 787 Dreamliner Market Timing Coup
Despite delays the launching of Boeing's much-anticipated 787 Dreamliner looks to have perfect market timing. With test flights now underway and commercial services starting in Q4 2010 the regional aircraft looks to have hit the ground running.
While the Airbus mega carrier A380 captured the imagination of travelers everywhere, in the current market which sees declining long haul travel and more short haul route growth, the sheer number of passengers is simply too many for most markets.
Key advantages of the Dreamliner are the use of lightweight composite materials, which shed off 20% of fuel usage and 45% more cargo. That equates to lower operating costs and increased revenue, which is something that makes financial analysts glow.
