All Nippon Airways Announces Model Change for B787

TOKYO--(Marketwire - Jun 19, 2012) -

      Announcement of Model Change for Boeing 787 Aircraft

ANA today announces an adjustment to its order
for Boeing 787 Dreamliners. The four B787-8 aircraft due to be
delivered from fiscal year 2013 onwards will now be replaced by B787-9
aircraft. The decision to order more of the larger 787-9 variant will
give ANA greater flexibility as it expands its international route
network. The total number of aircraft on order or delivered counts 55,
split between 36 B787-8 aircraft and 19 B787-9 aircraft.
ANA is the launch customer for the Dreamliner and has so far taken
delivery of seven of the 55 aircraft - 36 Boeing 787-8s and 19 Boeing
787-9s. The aircraft has entered service on domestic Japanese routes
and Haneda-Frankfurt since last autumn. ANA plans to launch long-haul
787 services from Tokyo to Seattle and San Jose on the US West Coast in
the current fiscal year.
