First at Orlando International perhaps but Thomson Airways has been using them at Orlando-Sanford International for about a year now.
Thanks KingBob. As mentioned, this is at MCO. It is the first 787 at MCO – Orlando International Airport. Sanford is a different airport jurisdiction and county although it markets itself as “Sanford-Orlando” it is really “near Orlando”.
All the best.
