First Boeing 787 on Seattle-Tokyo route lands at Sea-Tac
SEATAC, Wash. — Fire trucks spraying rainbows of water Monday morning greeted the first All Nippon Airways 787 to land in commercial service at Sea-Tac Airport.
The Dreamliner took its passenger to a terminal gate and prepared for its afternoon departure back to Tokyo.
A number of airline, Boeing and Port of Seattle officials were on hand to celebrate daily service with the 787 on the Seattle-Tokyo route event.
ANA was Boeing's launch customer for the new fuel-efficient widebody twinjet. The airline started the Seattle-Tokyo route in July, using a Boeing 777.
