World News: 787-9 Dreamliner

Recently, an all-black Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner was debuted for Air New Zealand. The aircraft has received much attention for its sleek and cutting-edge design. This model is 20 feet longer than its predecessor, the 787-8, and can fit 40 more passengers. The manufacturer plans to deliver ten of these new models to Air Zealand by mid-year. And 26 customers have ordered 409 787-9s to date, which accounts for nearly 40% of the models ordered. The 787-9 is also fuel-efficient. It can operate on 20% less fuel than other similar-sized planes. The model also features in-cabin LED lighting, promoting environmental sustainability. Air New Zealand will debut the model in October 2014, and the aircraft will offer 302 seats in total. Business class will hold 18 lie-flat seats, first-class economy will have 21 seats, and two economy cabins will hold 263 seats. Finally, as if the Dreamliner isn’t cool enough, it will also have fourteen Skycouch rows, which allows three economy seats to turn into three-seater, comfortable couches.
