For passenger service, it is but the longest flight by it was from Boeing Field to Dubai as BOE787.

I must be referring to a different tail than this one, but I know a brand new tail flew from KBFI-CYKA (kamloops), and then onward to EGLL. Would CYKA-EGLL be considered the first long-haul flight for this tail, despite not being a revenue flight?

Curious what they got out of such a short initial leg? There isn't much to see in CYKA. Enlighten me.

CYKA is home to Kelowna Flightcraft. They do specialized instrumentation work for Boeing. Perhaps this is a reason that they landed in Kelowna. Wish I had been there to see the Dreamliner up close and personal

Non-US airlines sometimes take delivery in Canada to reduce or avoid US taxes. Possibly the reason here. A few percent savings on $100M is a lot!!

Ok, happy that you can read between the lines. I really did think he meant, "1st <meaning first, as in none other before> 787 flight with passengers just landed 10:39pm EST". Oh well:)

Europe's not really a long haul. Wouldn't the first long haul have been the ANA delivery flight???

Maybe more than an 8 hour flight

That flight in the article was from Japan to Germany. I was referring to flights from the US to Europe not really being long-haul. Like I said up above, the first long one may have been the ANA delivery flight...

I should have clarified. This was the first REVENUE 787 long haul flight to Europe.

In July we sent ZA102 out to Guam from Everett, it was a 10+ hour ride. Two weeks later it went back home, this time on an extended endurance flight - full of fuel and minimal extra weight. Total time for that was 18 hours 20 minutes, if I recall.

While we were there ZA002 flew two out and back flights between Seattle and Guam to support us.
