Hmmm oddly enuff this week I heard three sepearet new stories about how air travel is a big producer of greenhouse gases. Dunno if bigger is better? More people per flight might be a solution but how's the gas mileage

Having said all that, it's a gorgeous plane, and on time!! :-)

Howdy Ian!

As it happens, fuel economy is one of the 787's biggest selling points. Boeing says the 787 will be 20 percent more fuel-efficient than current jets of comparable size.

See, for example, this:

I don't think they will make this new date based on the data I have seen.

Boeing needs to do more testing on the composite fuselage in my opinion. Composite materials tend to shatter on impact.
