787 Returns On Investment Earth Wind and Fire Edition

The spurts and sputters of the 787 Program has had a much publicized history covering more than just fasteners, glue and plastic. It reminds me of the band Earth Wind and Fire: Click Fantasy on below link, as opens in a new window, window back to these lyrics when the song starts; then follow on the lyrics (or just watch the show in the new tab, it’s worth it).



Fantasy

"Every man has a placeIn his heart there's a spaceAnd the world can't erase his fantasiesTake a ride in the skyOn our ship, fantasizeAll your dreams will come true right away
And we will live togetherUntil the twelfth of neverOur voices will ring forever, as one
Every thought is a dreamRushing by in a streamBringing life to the kingdom of doingTake a ride in the skyOn our ship, fantasizeAll your dreams will come true miles away
Our voices will ring togetherUntil the twelfth of neverWe all will live love forever, as one
Come to see victoryIn a land called fantasyLoving life, a new degreeBring your mind to everlasting liberty
As one, come to see victoryIn a land called fantasyLoving life for you and meTo behold, to your soul is ecstasy
You will find other kindThat has been in search of youMany lives has brought you toRecognize, it's your life now in review
And as you stay for the playFantasy has in store for youA glowing light will see you throughIt's your day, shining dayAll your dreams come true
As you glide in your strideWith the wind as you fly awayGive a smile from your lips and sayI'm free, yes I'm free, now I'm on my way
Come to see victoryIn a land called fantasyLoving life for you and meTo behold, to your soul is ecstasy
You will find other kindThat has been in search of youMany lives has brought you to"
On May 20th United flies the 787 for revenue others are starting its engines for the sake of the bank book. A group of people have some kind of axe to grind a day late and a dollar short.
Ethiopian the first to fly: sang out
"Every thought is a dreamRushing by in a streamBringing life to the kingdom of doingTake a ride in the skyOn our ship, fantasizeAll your dreams will come true miles away"


"FlyersRights.org" and the "Aviation Consumer Action Project" are petitioning the FAA and the Department of Transportation (DOT) implement a two hour limit on how far the plane can fly from the nearest airport".
Relevancy sometimes is a pain to acquire so FlyerRights.org may spend some money on a lemon stand, and then go suck lemons for its moment of relevancy.
Yes we give them a verse too:
You will find other kindThat has been in search of youMany lives has brought you toRecognize, it's your life now in review

Japan and ANA will fly after it goes through its due diligence for its customers and officials. They will unleash the 787 in a robust gesture by sending off with: 
As you glide in your strideWith the wind as you fly awayGive a smile from your lips and sayI'm free, yes I'm free, now I'm on my way
That is the month June's verse of choice.
Then there is Qatar coming soon: Singing the same tune. However, it pauses to lever its position, as true as one would, or could. Dare I say: "A330"! Just because? Qatar keeps its high card in both games, because it can. Boeing sings back to Qatar,
"Every man has a placeIn his heart there's a spaceAnd the world can't erase his fantasiesTake a ride in the skyOn our ship, fantasizeAll your dreams will come true right away"
