Interesting read. Other than previously noted issues, the articles says there are still many issues, including the air-bleed duct may not meet certification standards.

It also says that delivery may be delayed to mid 2011.

"Union Leaders" are questioning whether the work of any non-Boeing employee (union or not) is any good. If I were a union employee working for a supplier, I'd be pretty damn insulted that my "brothers" at Boeing are blaming all their problems on me to try to leverage that into more in house work in the future. What ever happened to solidarity?

Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

I agree that the source of information becomes as important as what the information is. In this climate where further delays are hot buttons things are going to fly into the media quickly with less analysis of the source. I agree about the concerted campaign to bring work back inhouse to Boeing sponsored by the unions. One can argue whether it would help or not and there are fair points on either side. It must be said the 787 surge line outside of Washington State caused some chills and now a strong PR campaign has resulted. Outsourcing continues to be a bane of the union so it is expected they will try and undermine it. I would hope that the same sort of points don't surface when the second line starts operating because that will benefit no one.
