Yes! Boeing will deliver the first passenger 787-10 frame to Singapore Airlines in 24 March 2018 from Charleston to Singapore. This will also mark the commercial debut of 787-10. Singapore Airlines will use 49 787-10s to replace their current A330-300 and regional 777-200s alongside the premium heavy A350-900.

Does anyone know why the range of the 78X around 6400nm and the 789 is around 7600nm according to http://www.boeing.com/commercial/787/

And same fuel tank capacity aswell 😉

But the difference is only 20 feet.

But 787-10 has more seats capacity. But I believe 787-10 has the same engine, fuel tank capacity, and same MTOW with 787-9 CMIIW

For more information, you can look it up here 😉

Well, that kinda sad. But nothing can beat the 787 wing flex.
