Executive Dream on Wings Selling Well
Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner is rapidly finding favor in an executive configuration. Deliveries are expected to begin in the middle of next year and, according to Boeing, the order book is approaching 500. Of those, seven are for executive versions (one of the first going to Swiss-based charter and aircraft management specialist PrivatAir). Two are for customers who purchased their aircraft from leasing firms that had earlier delivery slots. The first green executive version is scheduled for delivery in 2010.
