All Nippon Airways Orders 20 Boeing 787s

Just announced about 15 minutes ago.

All Nippon Airways (ANA) has ordered 11 787-10s and 4 787-9s with 5 options.

This order will bring ANA’s firm orders for Boeing 787s up to 98 aircraft consisting of:

  • 36 787-8s
  • 33 (current) 787-9s + 15 firm orders.
  • 2 787-10s + 12 firm orders

Total: 71 current 787s, 27 firm orders.

ANA’s 787 order book is now at over 100 aircraft including options.

As a result, this means ANA will once again be the world’s largest operator of the Boeing 787 surpassing American Airlines which expects to receive a total of 89 787s once all have been delivered.

ANA’s new 787s will be powered by the GE’s GEnx-1B engines instead of Rolls Royce which powers ANA’s current 787s.

The 787-10s will replace the aging domestic 777-200s and are expected to be delivered between 2022 and 2024 while the 787-9s will be delivered between 2023 and 2025.

Congrats to Boeing after not securing any orders in January!

Operating a single fleet has it’s obvious benefits but I cant help but feel like All Nippon has made an error going with the 787 - even if it helps secure the great company that is Boeing after a truly torrid time.

Shame RR has missed out on these orders too however I can see why that is the case.

That’s great news!!!

They’re buying them to replace the Boeing 767. The one I flew on (JA8669) was flown to San Bernardo for retirement after 25 years of service.

@ran Maybe this will push the ANA livery onto the -9?

I like how they’ll be powered by the GENX…they’re not the first operator to switch from RR to GE, Air NZ has done it with their 78x orders, those Trent 1000’s must’ve been giving them loads of headaches…
