Wide Body Report - January 12, 2016

January 12, 2016

After complaints from Al Nippon Airways, Boeing has begun shipping new, dimmable windows with its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which are capable of becoming darker than the original design.

Air China placed an order this past week for six Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.  The order is expected to increase their long-haul fleet by 5-percent.

Fiji Airways began its first service this past week flying newly delivered Airbus A330 aircraft.

The FAA has ordered mandatory inspections for three compressor discs on all GE90 engines of a pedigree similar to the one that failed and caused an engine fire aboard a British Airways Boeing 777 aircraft last September.
