This is ANA's first Boeing 787 Dreamliner (JA801A)

Today, Boeing and All Nippon Airways (ANA) showed off the special livery on the first 787 Dreamliner (ZA101 – JA801A) that is expected to be delivered by the end of September.

As reported previously, the blue lines at the rear of the fuselage are designed to highlight how the three core elements of the airline’s service brand ’“ innovation, uniqueness and the inspiration of modern Japan ’“ operate across the ANA network. Only two Dreamliners will be painted in the special livery, the rest will be in standard ANA livery.

The airline has already announced that they will operate this first Boeing 787 Dreamliner as a charter international flight from Tokyo, Narita to Hong Kong one month after they take delivery.

Hate to say it, but they should keep all of them in the standard livery. How this represents three core elements is beyond me.

But ,thank you for posting the picture! It is fantastic seeing the 787 in any airlines livery!

Agreed. The 787 on the fuselage is entirely overkill. But, with respect to ANA, Japan, and Japanese culture, it is an all new, very innovative aircraft. I can’t knock them for wanting to showcase it, especially considering the delays around it.

Hopefully this livery will be short-lived.

That’s an extraordinary aircraft though – the innovation brought about by that airframe isn’t showcased by the interior (which looks very much like a conventional aluminum aircraft). I love it.
