Boeing continues to make progress on the first 787-9 Dreamliner, with the first having just rolled out of the paint hangar with Boeing Commercial Airplanes' new livery.

 The refreshed look for the Boeing family began with the 747-8 and evolved with the 737 MAX. The new livery retains many of the features of the original 787-8 livery, adding a prominent number on the tail to help distinguish among models within the same product family.

The 787-9 will complement and extend the 787 family, offering airlines the ability to grow routes opened with the 787-8.

The fuselage has been stretched by 20 feet (6 meters) allowing the 787-9 to carry 40 more passengers an additional 300 nautical miles (555 kilometers).

 The 787-9 leverages the design of the 787-8, offering features such as large, dimmable windows, large stow bins, modern LED lighting, higher humidity, a lower cabin altitude, cleaner air and a smoother ride.

Boeing is on track to roll out and fly the 787-9, currently in final production, in late summer.

First delivery to launch customer Air New Zealand is set for mid-2014.
