Vietnam Airlines first Boeing 787 rolled out
The first Boeing 787-9 for Vietnam Airlines has been rolled out of the factory at Everett Paine Field near Seattle.
The airline is due to take delivery of this, the first of 19 of the aircraft on order, in May. It will initially be used on flights between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City for crew familiarisation, before commencing international flights to Frankfurt and London Heathrow later in the year (see our Boeing 787 Routes Page)
Vietnam Airlines will also soon take delivery of its first Airbus A350XWB, which was seen at Toulouse in March.
