Yesterday, Â Boeing, Japan Airlines (JAL) 和 GE celebrated the delivery of the first 和 second 787 Dreamliner with GEnx engines to 日航.
The morning started with a press breifing by 日航’总裁，公司规划执行官上野义治先生和大木哲ya先生。他们讨论了新型787飞机的重要性以及他们希望将来实现的目标。
Ueki, who recently became President of 日航, was previously a pilot for 35 years, flying aircraft like the DC-10 和 Boeing 747. He announced that 日航 has decided up their order of the 787 by an additional 10, making their total order for 45 aircraft.
他们计划接收25架 787-8s 和更大的20个 787-9. When asked when 日航 hopes to received additional Dreamliners beyond the two yesterday, Ueki stated he is unable to discuss when that might be, but he did confirm that he was excited to take two aircraft.
日航’s president explained the three main reasons why he likes the Boeing 787 Dreamliner: the fact it is a beautiful aircraft, the economics of flying it 和 the ability to fly long distances. 日航 currently plans to only operate their 787s on longer range flights 和 there are currently no plans to use their 787s on domestic routes.
“日航将充分利用这架飞机的效率，成为首家开辟从未有过的新航线的航空公司，从下个月的波士顿航线到今年晚些时候的圣地亚哥航线，” said Ueki. “配备GEnx发动机的787具有JAL正在寻求的经济性，以确保航线的盈利能力，以及增强的飞行舒适性，我们的客户将对此感到满意。”
日航 is planning to launch a route between Tokyo 和 Boston on April 22nd, followed by a flight to San Diego, Moscow, Delhi 和 Singapore in the next few months. Â JAL will be the first airline to operate the 787 Dreamliner to the United States.
后 此次会议, media 和 guests were taken down the gallery at the Future of Flight, which was nicely decorated in a 日航 theme. The facility’s的突出部分 波音747带有红色起重机徽标， 随着 large 日航 logos on either side of the stage.Â Jim Albaugh, president 和 CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Mr Yoshiharu Ueki, 日航’通用电气公司总裁兼比尔·菲茨杰拉德’商用发动机运营副总裁兼总经理都谈到了交付飞机的巨大成就。
波音不惧怕飞机延误，阿尔博甚至向日航道歉。“We know we’推迟交付这架飞机，对此我们深表歉意。但是我们希望当您开始操作这架飞机时，’我会为时已晚而原谅。我们认为这确实将为您带来改变游戏规则的飞机。”
后 阿尔博把两把钥匙交给植木 (one for each Dreamliner), a video was shown highlighting 日航’s new 787 aircraft. As drums played in the background, the screen was raised 和 curtains were opened to unveil 日航’的第一个Dreamliner（JA825J）。
The entryway to 日航’s 787 was very 热情好客。 With the 粉 lighting 和 warm colors of the interior, it really had a much more cozy feeling to it than other airline interiors. 日航 has configured this 787 to have 42 Executive Class seats in a 2-2-2 layout 和 144 Economy Class seats in a 2-4-2 layout.
Of course, one of the benefits of the Dreamliner is the ability to produce different LED lighting schemes through out the flight. 日航Â demonstratedÂ some of their planned themes, including 粉, 桃子，一种 蓝色 和 绿色，代表不同的季节。
