Puts in perspective some of the angst some forum members seem to be having over the delays. Thankfully airlines have a longer view outlook and base their decisions on actual business issues not the internet irrationality evident so often displayed. (tired to find a third word beginning with i but could come up with one  Wink ) Of course any smart airline will try to leverage this for their bottom line and some delayed airlines may receive some compensation. If they didn't they wouldn't be very smart managers.

After two weeks, there are 26 widebody aircraft on order for Boeing, pretty good for the usual slow Boeing January. I must say that the A320 has started off with a better year thus far than the 737.  Smile  Big grin (I believe at the end of the month we will probably see China, AWAS, and a few others)

With the recent trends in the 787 program Boeing can have 1000 firm 787 orders by LN 1 Power on!

Well, last year the 737 had a slow start as well, and IIRC at some point widebody orders outnumbered 737 orders 4:1 (400 vs 100) or something like that.

yes, the 737 started slowly last year; we even were all wondering why it started so slowly.

As for the 787s ordered today, I guess 10 were ordered LY (yesterday, Boeing Signed an Agreement with El Al for Landing Gear Repair and Overhaul Services).

This planes is just .. unbelievable!
1000 orders before EIS just seems more and more likely.

What can customers do? Sure ... the early ones probably get compensated, but there is really not much to do than accept the delay.
There's the A350, but that's an even longer wait. So unless you can afford to keep flying the A300 or B767 in 2020 ... get in line.
I dont think anybody in A-net expect Boeing to loose any customers because of the delays. For Boeing, however, to pay compensation for 800 (or 1000 frames, if there are a couple of more delays) might make the tremendous success of the B787 bittersweet.
Remember ... the plane has not even left gound yet. Just imagine Boeing crazy flight testing schedule with its problem- and delay potential

I remember that well and I also remember posting somewhere that it was a sign that Boeing had let word leak out about plans to unveil the next-gen narrow body.

Will Boeing necessarily have to pay compensation for all 800 current orders? As the 787 development progresses Boeing has got to have a better idea of the timeline for testing and EIS and therefore isn't making promises to new customers it knows it can't keep. The first couple hundred orders will probably need to be compensated, but as orders keep coming in the new customers will be well aware of the new timeline for delivery. God forbid any more huge delays, I really doubt that Boeing will have to provide any compensation to the new or recent customers.

James Wallace is reporting that it is a top-up order....

Boeing said Thursday it has sold an additional 24 of the planes -- 23 to one unidentified customer. An industry source said this is a follow-on order from a customer that previously had ordered the plane."

So, I wonder who could have ordered these 23 787s... An Asian carrier? AF/KL? an American carrier?

We can look at this as follows;

If Boeing had 53 customers at the end of 2007 and it's now 55 we know the following;

1: GF made an MoU / LoI in 2008 that's 54 customers.

2: Contingent on wording, Thai have commited to Lease, whilst not a direct customer, new operator all the same once the tender is complete, so 55.

I rule out Thai, as it's a lease, in which case there could be a strong possibility that this is a new customer for 23 frames. That said Air Canada have 23 outstanding Purchase Rights if Mr Wallace is looking at it from that perspective.

It all comes down to the wording and terminology of the press releases and how one interprets it.

BTW - This was posted well before Boeing updated their spreadsheet  Wink

There were 55 customers at the end of 2007 of which 52 are identified customers. The basis for 55 is the press release that outed three 787-9s ordered in 2007 as being for Air Pacific. The 52 identified customers is from the web version of Boeing O&D database.When the web page says "53 unique" you have to actually subtract one for the Unidentified customers which are lumped into a single set.

Quoting NYC777 (Thread starter):
The 23 787 UFOs are for two customers.

Both the Seattle PI and Seattle Times are reporting that the 23 are for a single customer. We can deduce that it is not a "new" customer since the 55 number has not changed. Seattle PI (James Wallace) has a source that also says it is an existing customer. As Stitch pointed out in the other thread, Wikipedia shows that AC have exactly 23 options. There are a few others like NH, NW and QR that have more than 23 options.

There is a brief discussion on the unidentified 787 customers at reply 30 in this thread.

Maybe that is behind the delay Big grin They just wait with the first flight till the aircraft reaches a 1000 orders.

NH is sitting on 50 options... Be hilarious if they expressed their "extreme disappointment" with the delay by ordering 23 more.

NW is sitting on 50 as well. Perhaps merger rumors with DL are farther along then we've been led to believe?

AC, QF and QR all have enough options on hand to account for 23 conversions.

Nope. They shouldn't have to pay until they know they're delayed. Right not, line number 800 is years away from delivery and they probably don't know if it will be on time or not.

Not to mention it would require the 787 production line to remain at a static delivery level over the entire life of the program.
