EVERETT, Wash. -- Boeing is turning its 787 into a family of planes.
The second version of the efficient, mid-size, long-haul widebody is the 787-9.
Boeing scheduled its first flight Tuesday from Paine Field, near the Everett factory where the plane was assembled.
The original 787 can seat between 210 and 250 passengers. The longer 787-9 can seat between 250 and 290 passengers. Boeing plans another stretch with the 787-10 that would seat between 300 and 330.
