The 787-8 is the base model of the 787 family, with a length of 186 feet (57 m) and a wingspan of 197 feet (60 m) and a range of 7,650 to 8,200 nautical miles (14,170 to 15,200 km), depending on seating configuration. It is the only 787 variant, and the third Boeing widebody (after the 747SP and the 777-200LR) with a wingspan wider than the length of the fuselage. The 787-8 seats 296 passengers in a three-class configuration. The variant was the first of the 787 line to enter service, entering service in 2011. Air Malaysia is targeting the 787-8 to replace 767-300ER, as well as expand into new non-stop markets where larger planes would not be economically viable.
Currently the flagship of the fleet, the Boeing 787 is Air Malaysia's most advanced and efficient aircraft in the fleet to date
