New-Design Aircraft from Bombardier and Boeing

Eva Airlines may have recently introduced the Hello Kitty plane to United, but business travelers are anticipating two new planes that are a little more their style. Last week, Bombardier’s CSeries aircraft flew in the form of the CS100 at Montreal’s Mirabel Airport and Boeing’s 787-9 Dreamliner took off from Paine Field inaugurated out of Seattle. The planes are slated to offer a quieter, smoother ride for passengers and cost savings to the airlines.

The C Series is a “clean-sheet” aircraft type, which means it’s a completely new design. There are two planes: the CS100, which will carry approximately 110 passengers, and the CS300, which will carry up to 160.

Over at Boeing, an extended version of the current 787-8 is the Dreamliner 787-9, although it’s not completely new unto itself: It adds 20 feet to the fuselage and carries 40 more passengers in a typical configuration. The 787-9 also has a range that stretches about 600 kilometers farther than the 787-8 does.

Swiss Airlines is the launch carrier for the CS100, with flights expected in late 2014 or early 2015. Air New Zealand fans are anticipating the Dreamliner 787-9’s launch in mid-2014.
