According to FI, Virgin Atlantic Airways is not concerned about the 787 delays. However, the impact on the 787-9 is not yet clear.

“They are pushing the technology boundaries and therefore they are likely to have some problems and I don’t think they should be damned for doing that, because if we get into this world and play it safe then nobody tries and nobody takes technology risks.

I don’t think we need to put much more pressure on them, they get plenty of pressure from the airlines already.”

Nothing's worse than flying the same reg twice!

yes , but since the 787-9s VS have ordered are not due until 2011 there is little reason to think that they will be delayed past the originally agreed dates - the A380s on the other hand were originally due for delivery about now weren't they (admittedly VS have now agreed to delay them further until 2013 .... if they take them at all )

indeed A380 out the window but the 787 nothing to worry about at least until 2010

Hey

I am sure that Virgin Atlantic have made Boeing very clear of what they are looking or (or not in the case of delays).

Also very sure Boeing will do their utmost to make any delays as sweet as possible, they must be pleased VS went from Airbus to Boeing (finally)?

Regards

Kimberly
