A First Look At The Boeing 787-10's Potential

Boeing 787-10 can replace some of the Boeing 777, Airbus A340 and Airbus A330 variants. Sales potential roughly 1,600-1,800 units or 800 to 900 units in a duopoly. 


The 787-10 Dreamliner is the newest and longest member of the super-efficient 787 family. As a stretch of the 787-9, the 787-10 leverages the family’s proven technology, long range and preferred passenger experience, with unprecedented efficiency: 10 percent better fuel and emissions than the best on offer by the competition and 25 percent better than the airplanes it will replace.


  • There are many more orders to win in the marketplace, though part of demand can also be filled by the Boeing 787-9 as a competitor to the Airbus A330-300.
  • This idea was discussed in more depth with members of my private investing community, AeroAnalysis.


The first Boeing (BA) 787-10 has been delivered to Singapore Airlines early April, according to official data of The Boeing Company. In this report, AeroAnalysis has a look at the specifications of the Boeing 787-10 to place it in the competitive scope, the replacement potential, the order backlog and the value this product has for Boeing.


The Boeing 787-10 is the biggest variant of the Boeing 787 family. Whereas the Boeing 787-8 and Boeing 787-9 carry 242 and 290 passengers, respectively, the Boeing 787-10 carries 330 passengers. All aircraft share the same wing span, but have varying fuselage lengths to accommodate for the extra passengers. The Boeing 787-10 adopted some elements that were previously unique to the Boeing 787-9.


While the Boeing 787-9 at first seems like a simple stretch of the Boeing 787-8, it is in fact a lot different as the wing has been strengthened to allow for higher weights, while it also has additional flap settings and the wing design has been optimized and hybrid laminar flow control has been installed on the stabilizers. In turn, some design changes made on the Boeing 787-10 were fed back to the Boeing 787-9.
