On Feb. 9-11, the Dreamliner will visit Thai Airways in Bangkok on what might be considered a sales call. Thai has not yet ordered any 787s.

Next up will be a week on display at the Singapore Airshow, on Feb. 11-18.

The Dream Tour has taken N787BX, aka ZA003, literally around the world. On the first leg it visited China, Ethiopia, Kenya, Qatar, followed by recent stops in Wichita, Kan. Rockford, Ill., Huntsville, Ala., and Dublin, Ireland.

Outfitted with all the bells and whistles Boeing offers on the 787, the Dream Tour plane will continue its journey through April.
