Following on the A380 and 787, in a neighbouring thread the latest A350 'slippage' is discussed; almost seems a normal thing these days:

Another A350XWB Schedule Slip (by n1786b Jan 19 2011 in Civil Aviation)

My question is what was the last major mainliner project to come in on-time and on-budget?

I think the 777 was done the right way.

Quoting DocLightning (Reply 1):

On time, but most reports have the budget being exceeded by a wide margin.

Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?

I would say that Embraer is doing it. For sure the projects are not on the same scale of A and B, but I was surprised on how fast the Phenom program achieved certification.

On time-Boeing (before the 787) had a pretty good record.
On budget-forget it.
