Boeing 787 to serve Seattle route by end of year



SEATTLE (AP) — Boeing workers will be able to see one of their new 787s in service at Sea-Tac Airport before the end of the year.

The Port of Seattle says All Nippon Airways plans to put the new plane on the Seattle-Tokyo route. The route will begin daily service July 25 with a Boeing 777 and later transition to the 787.

All Nippon is the launch customer for the new mid-size long-haul widebody. All Nippon will configure the plane with 46 full-flat business class seats and 112 economy seats.
