I am missing someone I know but I went through every 787 press release and got what I could. NH and NW are definite months. After that no clue in what order airlines receive the plane. The first 787-3 goes to NH and the first 787-9 goes to NZ.
Quoting AC777LR (Reply 9): I thought Air Canada placed before Qantas???
They did. Maybe the pilot contract issue caused them to have to give a few slots away. Qantas may have actually secured slots befreo AC before making the final decision. This is speculation of course.
First Japanese built section for the first NH plane will leave NGO in January. Is to arrive in Everett in February. (will go to Vought first to be connected to other pieces before being flown to Everett.)
Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!

Quoting Kaitak (Reply 15): Don't forget also that although Aeroflot has lost its delivery positions (and LY and IZ), these still exist and you can be pretty sure that Boeing is getting quite a few phone calls right now!
I'm sure that current 787 customers as well as premier prospects are talking to Boeing about the slots.
It will be interesting to see if BA and LH decide they want those slots bad enough to move up the timetable of their review and decision. It will also be interesting to see if Boeing ties some of the slots to 748i orders in a package deal.
