Description: The newest Boeing 7E7, dubbed Dreamliner, is a family of airplanes in the 200 to 350-seat class intended to carry passengers on routes between 3,500 and 8,500 nautical miles (6,500 km to 15,750 km). It has been developed to be super-efficient in fuel consumption with reduced environmental impact while providing high comfort for the passengers.

The Boeing 7E7 family of airplanes can be powered alternatively by both the General Electric's GENX (General Electric Next Generation) and Rolls Royce's Trent 1000 depending on customers needs. Two engines will enable the Dreamliner to fly at a cruise speed of Mach 0.85, while using less fuel (approximately -20%) than current airliners of the same class.

The 7E7 will be offered in three main versions: baseline (7E7-8), short (7E7-3) and stretch (7E7-9). The baseline and short versions are expected to enter into service in 2008 while the stretch model could enter into service in 2010 or later depending on marketplace. Each version can be configured in single (baseline and stretch version), two (short version) or three (baseline and stretch version) classes. Each configuration can accommodate a different number of seat/passengers.

The keys of the Dreamliner are the majority of the fuselage and wing made of composite materials, unprecedented open architecture for rapid configuration and addition of new characteristics, more efficient engines developed by GE and RR, and new construction and design techniques.

Boeing forecasts up to 3,500 7E7 jetliners being ordered through the life of the program which would last between 20 and 40 years. In the next few years before entry into service of the first Dreamliner scheduled for 2008, the Boeing company could receive orders totaling 200 to 500 airplanes.

The Boeing 7E7-3 is scheduled to enter into service in 2008 along with the longer range 7E7-8 model. It is capable of carrying 289 passengers in a two-class configuration over a range of 3,500 nautical miles (6,482 kilometers).

Japan Airlines Corporation (JAL) selected a combination of Boeing 7E7-8 and 7E7-3 mid-sized, twin-aisle airplanes on December 22, 2004. These aircraft are due to begin replacing its Boeing 767s and Airbus A300-600s in 2008. JAL will sign for 30 firm order airplanes and 20 options, the engines to power these aircraft have not been selected yet by the Japanese airline.

The People's Republic of China signed an important preliminary agreement with Boeing for the purchase of 60 Boeing 7E7 Dreamliners for six Chinese carriers on January 28, 2005. The Chinese carriers were Air China , China Eastern, China Southern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, Shanghai Airlines and Xiamen Airlines. The agreement was valued at $7.2 billion with the first airplanes due for delivery in time for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In parallel, Boeing made public that the 7E7 Dreamliner was following the 7-series tradition with the 787 Dreamliner designation.
