The latest version of American Airlines’ Boeing 787 Dreamliner was on display at a maintenance hangar near DFW International Airport Thursday, offering an up close look at the roomier premium economy cabin the company hopes will be a popular seller when it goes on sale next year.
The Boeing 787-9 is an extended version of the company’s 787-8 Dreamliner that debuted in American’s fleet last year. The new plane is 20 feet longer and seats 285 people, compared to the 226 seats on American’s 787-8.
The plane on display at American’s maintenance hangar Thursday hasn’t entered service yet, but a different 787-9 has been ferrying passengers between DFW Airport and Los Angeles International Airport for the last month.
