Boeing has unveiled its 787 Dreamliner at the India Aviation 2012 show in Hyderabad. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which was delivered to Air India, is a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner developed by Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

It seats 210 to 290 passengers, depending on the variant. Boeing states that it is the company's most fuel-efficient airliner and the world's first major airliner to use composite materials for most of its construction.
