Boeing delivers the first 787 Dreamliner on Sunday. The first one goes to Japan’s All Nippon Airways, which has been printing the 787 logo and “We Fly 1st” on its business cards for years. The new jet, which was supposed to be flying passengers three years ago, has been delayed by production and design problems.

Boeing expects to deliver a combined 25 to 30 of the 787s and new 747-8 this year. To meet the high demand Boeing has set an ambitious goal of building 10 per month by the end of 2013. No one has ever made a large plane that fast. The 787 list price runs between $185 million and $218 million. More >
