Boeing Unveils Its New More Comfortable, Fuel-Efficient Dreamline

Posted: Updated:

Boeing Co. raised the curtain on its first fully assembled 787 on Sunday to an audience of thousands who packed into its widebody assembly plant for the plane's extravagantly orchestrated premiere.

With flight attendants onstage from each airline that has ordered the jet, the giant factory doors opened wide as the plane slowly moved into view to the strains of a theme song composed specially for the 787, which Boeing calls the Dreamliner.

"Our journey began some six years ago when we knew we were on the cusp of delivering valuable new technologies that would make an economic difference to our airline customers," Mike Bair, vice president and general manager of the 787 program, told the crowd.
