Boeing Unveils First 787 to Enter Service for Japan Airlines

Boeing rolled out the first 787 to be delivered to Japan Airlines, now painted in its updated livery. The aircraft, whose final registration is currently unknown - believed to be Airplane 23 - will be handed over to JAL early next year following certification of the GEnx-1B-powered 787. JAL is set to be launch customer for the 787 pairing with GEnx engines, though this had only become explicitly detailed in recent weeks in comments by Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Jim Albaugh. 

Air India's first 787, a GEnx-powered aircraft, had initially been planned for delivery late this year, though final GEnx-1B testing on a production airframe, Airplane 35, had been delayed as the aircraft wasn't ready to fly. At last plan, Airplane 35 was set to fly during the middle of this month.
