While, there is no confirmation on the date Air India’s first 787 will be delivered, on the start of a six-month tour,  a Boeing 787 landed at the Beijing Capital International Airport, making its debut in mainland China.

The plane will be in China Dec. 4 through 11, with stops in Beijing, Guangzhou and Haikou, where Chinese customers, partners, government officials and media will experience the revolutionary technology. 

The airplane, ZA003, was originally used for flight testing but has been refurbished to showcase its capabilities and features. 

“I’m extremely impressed with what I saw including the spacious cabin, largest-ever windows, larger overhead bins, and the dynamic LED lighting,” said Fan Cheng, senior vice president of Air China. “I believe the Dreamliner will enable Air China to offer a superior passenger experience and I look forward to its important role in Air China’s plans for international expansion.”
