On 7 August 2014, All Nippon Airways (ANA) operated the first revenue flights of the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The aircraft (JA830A), which had been delivered on 28 July 2014, replaced a Boeing 777-200 on flight NH 241 from Tokyo (Haneda) to Fukuoka, returning as flight NH 248. It then flew to Osaka (Itami) and return (flights NH 25 and NH 30), then to Matsuyama and return (flights NH 595 and NH 598).
Nearly a month earlier, Air New Zealand became the first airline to take delivery of a 787-9 but is still using their aircraft for training. ANA was able to to quickly place their 787-9 in service given their extensive experience with the 787, with 29 examples of the smaller 787-8 already in their fleet.
