As a more broad discussion of this topic on the delivery schedule of 787s, (http://www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/general_aviation/read.main/4372499/) beyond ANA and Royal Air Maroc receiving some of the first 787s, what other airlines are currently scheduled to receive the initial batch of the first planes (say within the first 12 months), and when?

Ethiopian was mentioned in the above post, but what about JAL? Is Continental now likely going to be the first US carrier to receive 787s? Any idea when?

JQ (JetStar) will be taking 15 over 18 months starting in May 2010, taking the first wave of planes intended for DL and the Chinese carriers. Air India is also said to be interested in delivery as soon as possible.

Do you mean Line 21?

The ZAxxx number doesn't actually represent the number of the production line. Line 7 is now designated as ZA100, I believe. Anyway, it looks like JQ/QF are at least waiting until the Line 20 mission improvement changes (higher MTOW and weight savings).

So is Boeing going to stagger production frames (a mix of Block 1 and Block 2) planes, or will Boeing build almost 30 787s in the next 12 months?

I mean 30 in 12 months won't be that hard, I would imagine. ZA006 and ZA007 went together quite quickly so one the line is primed, they should be able to hit the "one to the paint hangar / outfitters every three days" mark pretty quickly, especially using SAT to help free up space at PAE to keep pushing them out.

And it would certainly help Boeing's finances and customer relations if they could get, say, 60 frames delivered by December 2010 (as I believe one aerospace financial analyst opinioned).
