For those who have been following Basic Flying, this information won’t be shocking at all. This month, it was announced that EVA Air was preparing to buy five new Dreamliners. The airline finally made a happy announcement about the repeat order with Boeing.

The -10s, meanwhile, are completely full, with 308 economy seats and 34 business seats. The airline also has unfulfilled orders for seven -10s and nine -9s.
