There seems to be finally some good news from Boeing on the delayed 787 program and for the airlines.

Polish flag carrier LOT expects to receive next year five Boeing 787s, which it will use to start replacing its Boeing 767-300ERs and potentially launch new Asian routes.

A LOT spokesman tells ATI and Flightglobal the Star Alliance carrier has "just received information from Boeing" that its first 787 is now scheduled for delivery in April 2012. He says another four 787s will follow in 2012 but precise delivery dates have not yet been provided by the manufacturer.

Would be the first European operator of the Dreamliner, right? Anyway it sounds good, but I'm not that optimistic with due-dates when it comes to Boeing's 787 program

Hopefully... LOT is in urgent need to replace their outdated B767-300 (in terms of keeping *Alliance standards).

And on top, I wish LOT will use the B787's at the same time for a major re-branding!

Indeed the B767s are showing their age for a few years now.

Interior yes the Y/J product is outdated but exterior I hope they dont mess up their iconic livery .

At least it shows Boeing is confident enough to give these specific delivery dates airlines. So... I'm pretty hopeful the end of all testing troubles are in sight, and production should build up in earnest now. Surprised to see LOT's 787's already confirmed though, according to NYC787's blog the first 787 for LOT is LN61, with LN35 right now in FAL.

Thomson Airways will take delivery of the first Boeing 787 in January 2012.

Per which delivery schedule (ie after which delay announcement)? Per this Oct. 2010 posting on a 787 blog, LO is scheduled to receive LN 61. Thomson is nowhere on that list. If the production order remains the same, LO's first 787 will at the very least be built before Thomson's.



Hoya Saxa!!

I'm hoping LO's 787 flies to Chicago in time for me to her on my trip for the Euro Cup!

I'd say that when you have one heading to San Anotino for prep, there's a strong indication that delivery plans are underway. Also, if they are informing customers of delivery dates as close as 2012, something has changed. On top of that a new customer is placing an order for 30 frames, I think the program may have made it through another portion of the maze. Now are they on the path leading out of the maze? After more than three years let's all hope so.

Somebody please tell that they're not actually going to go with that new livery they came up with a few months ago.


Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

I sure as hell hope not - I hope that livery was nothing more than a bad joke. The classic LO scheme would look wonderful on the 787.

The previous CEO planned to change/update livery with 787 deliveries, but there was so much criticism (including a facebook movement to save LOT's crane) that the present CEO and the board of Directors seem to give up on this idea.
Personally, I hope they spend money on updating their flight entertainment rather than new paint scheme.

Now there's an idea! I didn't think about it, but I was assuming these 787s are sure to have PTVs. Is it even possible that they won't??

Yes they will have the Thales TopSeries IFE installed in all three classes J/Y+/Y and there will also be flat beds in business unlike the current angled ones used on the 767s.
