Avianca will fly the 787-8 Dreamliner

One of my big hobbies is civil aviation, I´m one of those strange people who don´t only like travelling but also like airports and airplanes. I´ve been following the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner development since a while, this will be one of the new composite made civil airliners and the next generation mid capacity family from Boeing. The 787 will come in three flavors, 787-3, 787-8 and 787-9, being the 787-8 the first one to be on service during 2008. This last one can carry up to 223 people in three classes and has better autonomy of than the -3 variant due to it´s larger wingspan and winglets.

Avianca just announced that will be the first southamerican airline to fly the 787-8 during the 2010. Unfortunately American Airlines and LAN – my airlines of preference to and from the United States – are not in the order list, and SCL-MIA/SCL-DFW is not a high demand route, it means I´ll have to continue flying on the old 767-300 (763) for a while.

    The A340 is a different kind of plane. It uses four engines, not really ecology friendly 😛
