So, have they decided on a partner yet? I have yet to see anything in the aviation world on this topic for quite a while. I thought that a decision was to be made some time before the end of 2007.

I remember Delta, American and United bidding. Did anyone else put in for the North American division?

I think all they have at the moment is their EU MRO - SR Technics.

The Goldcare program was started years ago. 2004 /05?

I´m not aware any of the many 787 customers committed to the program.

I imagine it would appeal to the smaller operators.

If nothing else, Boeing has put together a world-class group of folks to support existing MROs with supporting the 787 so even if no company takes GoldCare, the fact that the infrastructure to support the plane exists will be of comfort to operators.

Not to my knowledge. I think there is one clear front runner, but we'll have to see for sure once an announcement is made.

And who would that be in your opinion?

Qantas Group were certainly complaining that GoldCare costs were too high.

Quote:
Boeing 787 launch customer Jetstar is concerned that operating costs for its new fleet will be significantly higher than expected after receiving the first batch of bids for aftermarket support. Speaking at the maintenance master class during last week's Asian Aerospace Congress in Hong Kong, Seb Mackinnon, acting general manager of procurement at the Qantas low-cost subsidiary, said that the figures Jetstar has calculated so far for 787 per hour operating cost is "quantum higher than what the Qantas Group was expecting and that's obviously pretty alarming".

AFAIK, only SR Technic has been named:
