Boeing's Head of the 787 Program gave a presentation today in Singapore on the initial production rate for the 787 and his thoughts on their pitch to SQ for their current RFP. Some of the points listed below;

Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Boeing Co., the world's second-biggest commercial planemaker, said it plans to deliver 96 of its fuel-efficient 787 aircraft annually, starting 2008 when the aircraft begins service.

``It's higher than any wide-body production rate we have seen.''

Deliveries of the 787, which can seat 223 to 296 passengers each, will exceed the annual rate of 96 planes two years after the aircraft has entered service, Bair said.


On the 787-9

Boeing said the first delivery of the 787-9, the stretched version of the model, is expected in 2010. Details of the plane's configuration will be firmed up in two years, Bair said.

On Singapore Airlines and the 787 (Naturally he's confident!)

Singapore Airlines may buy the 787 planes to replace its A310 aircraft for flights within Asia, Bair said. The carrier is flying Boeing 777s for regional routes, ``misusing'' the aircraft which has capabilities for longer flights, he said.
``Their primary interest is in more regional flying,'' he said. ``We're very confident they're going to end up purchasing the airplanes. This airplane is exactly what they have been looking for that part of their fleet.''

96 frames a year... WOW...
I still wonder what the heck is SQ waiting for... 787-3 is perfect A310 replacement for them. ANA is getting them, and so is JAL... Is it posible they are waiting for the rumoured -10 stretch to replace their 777s and then sweat Boeing out to give them a deal they can't refuse on both??

I believe that's what the article says. They replaced them with B777s, which they "abuse".

What is seating capasity & empty weight of the 787-3 compared to the A310?

Why not do a little research yourself?

788 2008
783/789 2010

i'll leave the weights up to you. Don't you know the A310 figures by heart though?

Pfew. And for Boeing, that's saying a lot.

Boeing is deliberatly pushing this out. If the A350 starts to gain any traction against the 772, watch for Boeing to compete directly with this plane.

"Pushing this out?" What are you talking about? The EIS was already amended from 2012 to 2010. What more do you want?

Interesting that SQ seem to be considering only the B787-3. It seems to me that the B787-8 would be perfect for SQ to increase frequency on a lot of the European routes that are now less than daily.

The A310 can be found easily. I can´t find the 787-3 empty weight anywhere..
