When will Continental receive their first frames?

Will JAL repaint their 787's in new colors?

Do I remember correctly that Norwegion will take some of the flight test aircraft? Which test aicraft will never be delivered to an airline?

To my knowledge the plan is that ZA004, ZA005 and ZA006 are still destinted for 787 VIP customers.

I would be shocked if they weren't repainted before entering service. The only question is whether Boeing will repaint them or JAL will after delivery.

They won't.   When will UA receive their first inherited frames?

They said the first plane off the South Carolina line with be a UA plane. Another Press Release says "first delivery in first-quarter 2012" for the SC plant.

Boeing wrote off 1,2,3 in their annual report last year (or maybe 2009)...those three will never be delivered.

Is there any difference between the aircraft built in Seattle and Charleston? For example, all aircraft to X airline is built in Seattle, and Y airline built in Charleston? Or maybe GE-powered birds are assembled in one and RR in another?

I would love to fly on a 787 that rolled off the line in my home state!

There shouldn't be if Boeing wants to keep their Production Certificate.  

CHS will start with assembling the 787-8, freeing up capacity at PAE to begin assembly of the 787-9. Eventually, both lines should handle any 787 model offered.

Boeing Sends Updated 787 Production Schedule To Customers

Can it be that this is a spoofing? Why don't we simply call it another delay?

At least for some airlines like e.g. AC. (1. delivery now 4th quarter '13! Another delay of 5 - 7 month!)

So we are looking at another 5-7 month average delivery delay even for early customers? Or is the AC delivery slip a one-off phenomenon?

Because it's not another delay. It's the result of the last announced delay (i.e. Q3 this year), flowed out to the whole production schedule. The Z23 schedue has been on the way for quite a while now.

Hopefully Boeing is being extra conservative with this latest, (and the gods willing, the last), schedule.

This phenomenon of snowballing delivery delays was widely expected.

So far, a lot of attention has gone to the EIS slip, which was quite spectacular indeed, but it's not like the problems are over once the first 787 is finally delivered to ANA, quite on the contrary even: not only did Boeing plan for a previously unseen short development and test phase, they also sold the 787 with an extremely ambitious production ramp up in mind.
None of all this worked out the way it was planned, hence the EIS slip and now also the post EIS delivery slips... some customers might easily have to wait over a year extra for their 787 on top of all the other delays they already had to sit out.

Because it's not a new delay. It's the quantification of the delay announced several months back after the ZA002 fire. Boeing never provided an updated schedule beyond "First delivery in Q3 2011" after that. This is the rest of the schedule coming out.

Not beyond what was already known, no.

Quoting PlaneInsomniac (Reply 13):

No, everything got delayed by the ZA002 incident. Boeing moved the first delivery date but never publicly flowed out the rest of the deliveries until now.

CO chose GE.

United hasn't chosen, but hasn't ordered a GE engine since UA232 and is going to have to go RR on the A350.

My guess is they will go GE on all 787s - CO management is supposedly in charge now, right?

Boeing's paint hangars are backed up at PAE and soon to be at PDX as well, so I doubt they'll be repainted on Boeing's dime in the Northwest. MZJ or VCV come to mind as alternatives.

@ gspflyer: what Stitch is trying to say is that they MUST be identical, otherwise they would have to flight test 2 different models, destroy another pair of aircraft for flight testing, etc. Other a.net members will know FAR more about this subject than I do. Maybe they will throw in their two cents worth.

I understand that the first plane from CHS will be for UA. Is that the first plane UA will receive or will UA receive some planes from PAE before that? Flightblogger says the first plane out of CHS will be #46. According to this blog, http://nyc787.blogspot.com/, the first UA plane is #45 which is 10 away from the most recent plane to start final assembly at PAE, #35 for Air India. According to the current rate (based on when the next 3 planes are scheduled to start final assembly), #45 would begin final assembly around July/August which is in line with Flightbloggers quote of a July start...

AFAIK the customer number is selected according to the order not the delivery. That being said, they should be 787-824 (neither -222 nor -224   ). Some of Northwest 747-451 were delivered new to United in the past and they remained 747-451.

Best regards

But I'm not sure it was what gspflyer was asking. It looks like he was thinking of the interior configuration, and options in general (including engines).
