Boeing’s Dreamliner is quickly becoming the standard for long haul flights around the world. While we won’t see these birds in the sky for another year or two, Boeing keeps on selling the 787s in large quantities. The latest buyer to join the fun is Jet Airways, India’s largest domestic airline. In the last year or so, Jet has expanded its route structure beyond the sub-continent and the 787 will help establish Jet as the primary Indian player on the international market.
The aircraft will be delivered between July 2011 and December 2012, the Mumbai-based airline said in a statement to the Bombay Stock Exchange. The 787-8 has a list price of as much as $157.5 million
