So, later in 1990s, the747X and Sonic Cruiser projects were cancelled due to insufficient market interest. As a result, inJanuary 2003, the 7E7 project was announced. The leader of the 7E7 project is Michael Bair. Boeinghopes the 7E7 project will help it regain the commercial-aircraft sales that the company had lost overthe years to Airbus.Boeing envisioned a higher-efficiency aircraft with lower operating costs to meet the needs of cash-strapped airlines in the midst of an unstable petroleum market. Through advancements in airframedesign, jet engine technology, and the use of composite materials, the new 7E7 aircraft would also bemore environmentally friendly than its predecessors. Although there was no official definition for the"E" in 7E7, it stood for "efficiency" or "environmentally friendly" to some. In July 2003, a public namingcompetition was held for the 7E7, for which out of 500,000 votes cast online the winning title wasDreamliner. The Boeing 7E7 was also expected to eventually be renamed the 787.The concept of Boeing 7E7 is driven by customer requirements. Base on the discussion with over 40airlines throughout the world, Bair identified a fresh market to replace mid-size plane that could travellong distances and lower operating costs. Boeing was considering two new members for the 7E7 family,which are a basic and a stretch version.Boeing 7E7 Baseline ModelThe Boeing 7E7 baseline is a super-efficient airplane with new passenger-pleasing features. It will bringthe economics of large jet transports to the middle of the market, using 20% less fuel than any otherairplane its size.
