FlightBlogger Jon Ostrower reports that Japan Airlines on Monday might fly away with two Boeing 787s after a ceremony at Paine Field in Everett, not the previously announced single delivery:
There are strong indications that JAL will not take delivery of not one, but two 787s on Sunday, the program’s first dual delivery. Delivery of Airplane 23 (JA822J) is firm at this point, while Airplane 33 (JA825J) may be slated for a late afternoon Monday flyaway as well, say program sources.
However many planes are delivered, JAL’s 787s are the first equipped with General Electric GEnx engines. The first 787s delivered, to launch customer All Nippon Airways, were equipped with Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 powerplants.
