Boeing delivers first 787-9 Dreamliner

Boeing Co. on Monday contractually delivered its first 787-9 Dreamliner to Air New Zealand, although the airline won’t take possession of the plane until July 9. The contractual delivery lets Chicago-based Boeing book the delivery in its second quarter, Reuters reports. The 787-9 is a little longer, can carry 38 more people and fly about 450 miles farther than the 787-8 jets, the first Dreamliners put into service. Boeing has sold the 787-9 to 25 customers.
