The first deliveries are scheduled for 2018. To date, the 787-10 Dreamliner program has received orders for 149 aircraft, from airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Air Lease Corporation (ALC), All Nippon Airways (ANA), British Airways, Etihad Airways, EVA Air, GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and United Airlines.
Thus, the Dreamliner family became rich with the largest aircraft. 787-10 is longer by 5.5 meters from the "brother" 787-9. As a result, it can carry more passengers, but at a lower fuel consumption, being a reliable long-haul flight.
From 2011, since the first 787-8 entered operational service, the global Dreamliner fleet has transported over 152 millions of passengers on 560 routes worldwide.
