Airlines salutely there's only one inaugural, flight in the world and this is the launch 77. - night flight data we made history tonight that's on the way to Singapore Nessa and Ganesh now, I want to know is, why. Singapore Airlines Bob 2-10 what's, the difference between - 10 to the 7, days that's a 10-9 that. You already have over 650. Flying, in the world perfect, so 787. Is a family, and, as, you correctly said we, have delivered 650. Which, are - 8 + - 9 and what's. So special about - 10 is, if you want to make even more money than, you make it with - a 10-9, this. Is the airplane this, airplane, has about. 40, more seats and the dash 9 and by. That you, can reduce, your cost per seat I want to run the airline to the answer yeah called air Sam tree yeah because I have so many you to supporter, in yes yes, they, would love to come on my air on their fire lines gonna have a swimming pool a casino inside, and you able to deliver something like an endpoint do anything, as long as you are right amount of money all right, would. You give me a discount if, I pay you with cash absolutely. We are we always give you the best price that will. Give you the value, that you can make money with that is why we sold thousands, of airplanes because, our customers, enjoy.

Welcome on to our delivery, flight as you can see is not a regular, flight, today. We have catering from Boeing, tonight's. Dinner will be teriyaki, chicken beef. Filet grilled, salmon and start, portobello, mushroom. Which. Would you like for dinner. So. Guys because, this is a delivery play everything is catered from Boeing and it's, not the usual Singapore, Airlines center as you would expect as you would know we. Got everything, plastic, tray. Disposable. Plastic. Knife plastic, fork but. The food is good like I have the teriyaki chicken, here smells, very nice. Key. Lime tart and. Green. Salad with smoked, salmon this, appetizer. And. A Brad roll. All. The media members had a very long day since early morning with interviews, and tour bowing plants so after dinner we were super tired and, Kevon light was dimmed for much-needed, rest I slept, about eight hours soundly, before, the breakfast service as we approached the other side of the Pacific.
Root, Vegetable, homeless and this is the vegetarian, choice which is this rebel in. Your. Ham and cheese omelet the dreams and joy. It was quite a standard flight the plane performed, flawlessly like, it has over the last couple, of days a very, smooth right, and nice. Landing as well. No, the plane is a very impressive plane you know it's, a very efficient, we're, quite impressed with its fuel, burning efficiency very. Nicely all right good to know Thank You captain thank you and how do you feel after flying, 14, hours and 30 minutes. I'm. Checking my scheme because, Boeing. Dreamliner is, supposed to make your steamed moist and the humidity is supposed to make you feel better so. Younger. I think I think you're getting younger every fly you do you're. Gonna. Fly so we need to in place. Local. Time 2:30, in the morning, that's, working very hard to deliver the catering on board but this is different now, apart, from our Boeing catering, this Sigma, for Airlines catering, onboard. Sorry. Excuse me gentlemen Brian Sam unfortunately. Today we only have one seat laughing business class what. But there's two of us I understand, I'm so sorry don't fly coach I do understand. But I do have a solution for you okay, this is bad right, in the back of MacLean now, whoever grabs the Bertha's gets, a glass business bus no it's on Sam. Walking. Weather gets bad. All. Right. Economy. Brian. Economy, more than six hours here, we go. See. You guys later see, you in Singapore, all, right this obstruction. Okay, put your hands off cuz I have to. In the house trash. And now turn to the left. They. Had an event at exactly. Ticket. Six and a half hours from cut like the Singapore. Attendees. Steve doesn't lovelies right now and so we're expecting maybe. Slight thoughts and maybe the stadium. Will be no chance, week at, 32,000. Feet and. We expecting, the endtime arrival chance. Before. Morning. So. Captain I'd like to know how many 7/8 7-10, Singapore, air will take this year ok this year we are receiving eight out of the 49. Study. Twinkle. About 80 pilots, they will, be trained by me. We're, just about 5 hours before. We're landing Singapore, it's been such a long play it's almost 24, hours from. Takeoff in Charleston, and then, landing in Singapore 24, hours delivery, plan has to be the longest in the world now. I'm just working on some of the movie clips as you can see. I've care about two hours on the ground in Ken's sight we were in the air again this, time everyone is awaking, the cabin TV, and digital media started, filming reporters. Busy interviewing and filing story. Another. Breakfast is served, this time the catering is from Japan I have a really delicious, breakfast. Grow seven dish. Sam. Good. How you join the flood yeah. I would write this as possibly. The best regional, business, class in the world now, it's. A huge leap up from one sin realizes, had previously, we're, looking at direct aisle access, to every passenger we're looking at a fully flat, bed and there, are lots of other little touches, I think that are fantastic, about this see I've, been for example if you're working like I am here, you've got this little power panel with two USB.
Ports And they're high-powered, ports so, you can plug in a large phone or a tablet and charge it up you've got AC there you, can put tablets. And other stuff in this, area here I think, there's a not lovely touch here which is this is Alcantara. Material. Usually used in high-end automotive, finishes it's, very soft, it. Gives you a nice warm comforting, feeling if you put your head against it but, also it's, good for noise reduction because, instead of a hard service, that redirects, noise or soft surface like this all the noise. Exactly. It's very how many finish there so you, know it's a lot of very, thoughtful, touches like that which, make, this seat come together really well look, at the a330s it's a 2 to 2 seating, and they're these sloping, sleepers. There are climbers you. Get to this which, has got direct dial access and a one-to-one layout it's, got a fully flat bed that's, a quantum leap for passengers, and again the longer the journey the better they're going to feel about it happier, they'll be. The. Deputies are. Especially. It. After. More than twenty, three and a half hours. Covering nearly 11,000. Miles we, finally, took the world's first Boeing 787. - 10 - her home as Singapore, it was a very proud moment for the airline and everyone, on board that was my longest delivery, flight record I hope you have enjoyed the experience together, and, thanks for watching.
