Boeing has updated 80 airlines and eight financial institutions about its planned 7E7 Dreamliner passenger airplane, and gathered inputs that will support the program's work next year.

The two-day meeting in Seattle provided Boeing with the chance to talk to customers about the plane, share concepts to standardise and simplify the airplane, as well as revealing the 7E7's interior.
The attendees represented more than 80% of the owners and operators in the 7E7's market segment.

"By listening to the customers, we have been able to make real headway on an exciting new airplane – inside and out – that will be ideal for our airlines when it enters into service in 2008," says John Feren, vice president, customers, 7E7 program, Boeing. "It's amazing the time and energy our customers have given us to help us deliver the best value proposition. And they are responding very enthusiastically to what we are showing them."

Boeing has also given leasing companies and financial institutions a more active role in the 7E7's development than they have had for prior projects.

"Given the current financial conditions of many airlines we know that access to capital will have an ever increasing role in financing airplanes," explains Feren. "We are gathering input from financial institutions about what concerns, ideas and needs they might have to make our new airplane successful."
