Air Canada is yet another carrier bringing Boeing B787s to LAX. This is a -9, which is replacing the B767-300 in Air Canada's fleet. Air Canada has both B787-8 and B787-9 models, configured for 251 and 298 passengers, respectively. We see a mix of Air Canada's wide body jets on the midday flight from Toronto; the Dreamliner is the current favorite, although we also regularly get A330s and B777s. Here are a few more B787 shots:
|Head-on view, because how often do you get to see a Dreamliner from this angle?|
|That's a LAN B787-8 on takeoff roll to Lima, Peru, a seven-hour flight; with a Delta B717 sandwiched in between. LAN's B787-8s are configured for 247 passengers, while the Delta B717s accommodate 110.|
|With a Southwest B737-800. Note the new split scimitar winglets on the B737. The B737-800 is the largest aircraft in Southwest's fleet, with a passenger capacity of 175.|
|That's a Saudia B777-300 parked at gate 123A; one of the few vestiges left of the old TBIT.|
Saudia flies in from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the world's 6th-longest scheduled airline flight, with 305 passengers.
|The red-tailed B767-300 in the background belongs to Air Canada rouge, and carries 280 passengers|
between LAX and Vancouver.
