New stats on ANA's 787s

All Nippon Airways has come out with some interesting statistics on its Boeing 787 fleet, to mark the one-year anniversary of the plane’s entry into service on Nov. 1, 2011.

Here’s a selection of what they released:

During the past year, ANA’s 787s have flown around 9,000 flights, carrying a total of 1.8 million passengers.

ANA's fleet of 787s has recorded a 10% higher passenger load factor than other aircraft in the fleet, recording 82.6% on international routes and 72.8% on domestic routes. A recent passenger in-flight survey revealed that 40.4% of passengers selected their flights specifically to fly on the 787 while some 98% of passengers said they would like to fly again on 787. 

At launch, it was anticipated that the 787 would save 20% in fuel for each international flight. ANA confirms that the saving amounts to 21% per flight.

ANA currently has a fleet of 16 787s, more than any other airline. In September 2012, ANA announced plans to purchase an additional 11 787-9s, bringing the total number of 787s ordered by ANA to 66.

The carrier flies 787s on 12 domestic routes, and three international routes (with a fourth to be added in January).
