Monday was the fifth anniversary of the first 787 delivery to launch customer All Nippon Airways. Since then, Boeing has delivered over 450 787s and has orders for 700 more. We decided to take a look at Monday’s 787 flights to see how airlines are using the 787. All data is taken from Monday, 26 September UTC.

ANA has taken delivery of 50 787s so far, with orders for additional 33 aircraft (including 3 787-10 models). Qatar Airways, whose fleet of 787s numbers 30, operated the second most with 84.
