Hail damage caused 787 to return to airport.[edit]

Hail damage leaves big dent on American Airlines Dreamliner http://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/flights/todayinthesky/2015/07/28/american-airlines-dreamliner-dinged--hail-returns--beijing/30774143/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Geo8rge (talkcontribs) October 8, 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 12 November 2017[edit]

on the variants page, on the last line about the -10, it states that the aircraft is to be delivered to "SIA", I request a change to Singapore airlines instead as not everyone knows what "SIA" is 222.152.60.248 (talk) 05:24, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

That's a good idea, but not required. Previous text in the section (2nd paragraph) lists "Singapore Airlines (SIA)". --Finlayson (talk) 05:27, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Bleedless engine cabin air system[edit]

I removed the sentence "the bleedless engine cabin air system also allows the 787 air to avoid oil fumes and toxins which are dangerous to the health of passengers and crew and are found in all other aircraft bleed air systems.<ref>{{cite web |work= Global Cabin Air Quality Executive |title= Only the Boeing 787 Provides Passengers and Crews with Clean Breathing Air" from the article. The website aerotoxic.org [1] is not a reliable source. But more importantly, the original document "BOEING 787–8 DESIGN, CERTIFICATION, AND MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS REVIEW" [2] makes no claims about "oil fumes", "toxins" or the bleed air system on any other aircraft. So the whole sentence is not supported by the source. --McSly (talk) 15:39, 25 December 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for this! I'm pretty sure conventional bleed air systems could not be certified if they were toxic, and there should be some results from any toxicity since 60 years.--Marc Lacoste (talk) 21:50, 25 December 2017 (UTC)

Sabotaged Image Links[edit]

Someone has sabotaged this page by changing all the image links to links to a YouTube video. I'm not a sufficiently advanced Wikipedia user to attempt to fix this so I'm posting here to flag it for someone who can.Pedrofp (talk) 04:14, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

the external image template only points to flight's cutaway--Marc Lacoste (talk) 09:02, 13 January 2018 (UTC)

Range versus London-Perth distance[edit]

The article says that Qantas will start flying London-Perth, a distance of 14,499 km. However the maximum range of a 787-9 is quoted as 14,140 km.

Is the range figure wrong? Zin92 (talk) 12:24, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

No - the Qantas aircraft will only have 236 passengers or less and more fuel to get the extra few miles. MilborneOne (talk) 14:33, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

787-9 fuel capacity[edit]

According to specs, 788 and 789 have virtually the same fuel capacity, yet heavier 789 has greater range. I think something's wrong here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.160.155.34 (talk) 16:46, 29 March 2018 (UTC)
