The Jan 2013 spate of Dreamliner problems has led to news articles that include stats about fleet size.
For example, from CBC news,
- All Nippon Airways has 17 Dreamliners
- The two Japanese carriers have just over half of all 787s that are currently flying
- Air Canada has 37 firm orders for the planes, to be delivered in 2014
And from Yoimuri,
- ANA has 17 of the aircraft in its fleet and Japan Airlines has seven, accounting for almost half of about 50 787s in service worldwide.
(I am not clear why 24 can be "over half" and "almost half" of 50 at the same time)
This Guardian article goes with the same "almost half" factoid and adds,
- British Airways, Thomson and Virgin have placed orders, with BA expecting to operate the first of its 24 Dreamliners this year.
- LOT (which is Polish) has 2 and is doing Chicago-Wroclaw with one of them
Read enough of those articles, though, and you'll probably be in a little less of a hurry to get a chance to fly one.
New articles as the grounding continues.
This CTV News coverage,
- Ethiopia Airlines: 4 (Washington D.C. to Addis Ababa -- a distance of 11,500 kilometres and the airline's longest-ever flight)
- Poland's LOT is the only European airline flying Dreamliners: 2
- United Airlines is the only US airline flying Dreamliners: 6
- Japan's ANA: 17
- Japan Airlines: 7
- Air India: 6
- Chile's LAN Airlines: 3
- "That accounts for 45 of the 50 Dreamliners Boeing has shipped since the first one was delivered to ANA in 2011"
May 2013 coverage of the return to flight reveals more.
A CNN article says 8 airlines fly it:
- Qatar Airways (Doha - Dubai, Doha-Heathrow) - and this is the one we didn't know about before so presumably they have 5
- Ethiopian Airlines (Addis Ababa-Nairobi)
- Japan Airlines (and the same factoid that ANA and Japan Airlines have 24 of the 50)
- United (Houston - Denver)
- Air India
Some are starting flights in May, others in June. The routes they are using do not, in general, seem like the routes this plane is needed for, so expect schedules to continue to adjust.
