I’m already pretty bullish on the 787 and Boeing. Seeing orders coming from countries like China and Russia (who are both trying to build their own planes) is a great sign of the global strength of Boeing and the 787 product.
I don’t know where Transaero plans to fly the 787s, or what they plan for a configuration. In fact, I hadn’t heard of them before reading this news piece. They already have some service to North America with more planned in the future. Looks like it’s about $1,000 to fly roundtrip Miami-Moscow.
