Hello there IF Community! This is a request for the addition of the American Airlines 787-8, since American has continued to add new 788 routes, and since similar threads are outdated or have been closed.
About the American 788:
American Airlines is the largest airline in the world. American received its first 788, the first of all of its Dreamliner fleet (both the -8 and -9) on January 23, 2015. At one time, American accounted for 24% of the 787-8 backlog. Once all of their order is filled, American will be the largest operator of the -8 in the Western Hemisphere. American operates the -8 out of DFW, ORD, LAX, and soon PHL, both domestically and internationally.
Routes (some routes are seasonal or will begin in the next year)
DFW-Buenos Aires Ezeiza
ORD- Tokyo (NRT)
LAX-Buenos Aires Ezeiza
LAX-Sao Paulo Guarulhos
(Some of the routes are operated interchangeably between the -8 and -9 variants)
With over 30 different routes operated by American using the 787-8, many of which are operated multiple times a day, adding this livery to IF will significantly improve realism in IF not to mention it’s a beautiful livery as well. Overall, this would be a great addition to the simulator!
