Boeing 787 Dreamliner completes first Trans-Pacific passenger flight, lands in Boston as JAL 8
Boeing’s Dreamliner has hopped the Pacific with passengers on board, departing Tokyo Narita and landing at Boston’s Logan International Airport around noon on Sunday. The JAL service marks New England’s first Asia route, enabled by the 787′s efficient design which lets airlines fly to lower-demand cities without wasting fuel on empty seats. The 787 will be making the 6,869-mile journey four times a week through May 31st, at which point daily service will begin, with flight 7 departing Boston at 1:20PM and arriving in Tokyo at 4 the following afternoon. Passengers on flight 8 will leave Tokyo at 11:30AM and land in Boston at 11:20AM on the same day. This is likely to be your best opportunity to ride a US-bound Dreamliner until United begins service later this year, so hit up the source link to get your fix, priced upwards of $1,500 for dates throughout the summer.
