    For all us Brits out there Norwegian Air has a 787 Dreamliner flying direct on Mondays and Thursdays. Return flights start at just over £300 including all taxes. It has Economy and Premium but no Business or First Class. Premium seats look to be around the £1000 price range but include a lot of extras as well as much more legroom.

    a 787 has no business or first class? Or only for these flights?

    Not sure. Dreamliners are very new so they may have Business or First for other destinations but doesn't show on the Vegas ones.

    It's unusual to see dreamliners without business but you can spec them like that from Boeing if you want. I imagine others may follow if it's profitable.

    I'm sure there are more than this but the only one I know is Thomson.

    I don't see the point. If an airline wants to go all economy, why not use the older a330's or 767's. The 787 is an elite aircraft with arguably the best international business class going. I.E. profitable premium seating.

    I've flown Royal Jordanian 787's in business and it truly is a remarkable experience, 2nd only to Qatar and perhaps Cathay Pacific.

    The 787 dreamliner is a replacement for the stuff you are talking about because it is more efficient, lighter, produces less carbon, can fly further etc. It makes more sense to use one for economy only configurations than an older plane that apart from anything else will cost more to run and higher costs with lower operating income is a bad combination.

    Really, the 787 is just the next generation of A330. It might appear a bit fancy because it's new but it's designed to be a versatile commercial jetliner that people can use how they see fit.

    Anyway, it's not like buying a car as airliners are designed to be reconfigurable so if the economy model doesn't work they can easily rip out the front seats and put in some lie flats so they have a business class.

    Fuel economy on the 787.

    Norwegian is a low cost carrier.

    The math doesn't work. A 240 million dollar Prius a Dreamliner is not.
