With the 787-8 now flying, how does this impact the completion of the first 787-9? Is there a broad projected first flight date yet?

I wouldn't think it affects it at all; whether the 787-8 is flying or not doesn't have anything to do with designing the 787-9 this early in the game.

The most recent press I can find says 787-9 in 2013, but it's not clear if that's flight or delivery.

Scott Fancher's May 2009 787 Program Update shows EIS for the 787-9 to be "Early 2013".

I have not heard of any subsequent changes to that date.

As per the August 27th 2009 conference call, the EIS of the 787-9 was pushed back to "late 2013"

I assume that puts first flight at around early 2013

In a recent interview with IATA , Rob Fyfe CEO of NZ, the launch carrier said quote " At the moment, there is still such uncertainty about when the (789) program will deliver. It means we have to re-examine all our lease agreements..." NZ don't seem to be taking any EIS projections for granted.

At this stage of 787-9 design we're working to preliminary loads. The impact of the 787-8 testing on the 787-9 will come with the load data gathered by ZA004, and if any significant problems are found during testing.

Now that the 787-8 is flying the first Major hurdle has been cleared, many things have been learned about teh 787 that were unknown before she flew. By 01/01/2011 the first 787 will be flying in Asia for ANA, so lets be optimistic about the 787 schedule going forward.
