Boeing Celeberates Delivery of the 500th Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Boeing and AerCap have celebrated the delivery of the first Boeing 787 for Air France. The airplane, a 787-9, is AerCap's 50th Dreamliner and also the 500th Boeing 787 produced on Boeing's production lines.

The Boeing 787-9 with registration number FHRBA touched down at the Charles de Gaulle Airport Paris this morning at 9 am following a delivery flight from Boeing delivery center. It was given the traditional water salute and was cheered by a great number of the airline's staff.

The aircraft has the capacity for up to 276 passengers across three classes - 30 Business seats, 21 Premium Economy and 225 Economy seats.

The Air France-KLM Group has ordered a total of 18 787-9s and seven 787-10s, with an additional 12 787-9s leased through AerCap. The arrival of Air France's first 787-9 in Paris today is part of the carrier's continued renewal of its long-haul fleet.

The 787-9 leverages the visionary design of the 787-8, offering passenger-pleasing features such as the industry's largest windows, large overhead bins, modern LED lighting, cleaner air, more humidity and and turbulence-sensing technology.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
