Congratulations Boeing!

I thought it was thoughtful that the U. S. Type Certificate, the Production Certification and the Euroepan Type Certificate were presented to the people who acutally did the work rather than the top executives such as Albaugh and McNerney.

I was blown-away at how silent this beautiful beast is, when it took off over my head at OSH. I cannot wait to see it plying the blue skies.

I agree with TomB. That is a nice gesture.

I'm really excited to see these birds enter service with the airlines. Up here in Seattle we get to see the 787 and the others pretty often. It really is a beautiful design and it will be a wonderful airplane to see at the world's airports.

First of all, I am very happy this day finally came! ABOUT TIME!!

However, I'm sorry, but being so late in getting the certificate doesn't give me any reason to congratulate Boeing... I'm not saying I don't want the airplane to fly or to be certified, it's just that with the longest delay in airplane history, Boeing cannot be congratulated for something that should have happened YEARS ago if the management wasn't so screwed up. I still remember the day Boeing unveiled the 787 to the world (July 8 2007) and one of the first comments of the CEO was "I flew in a very slow airbus".... Right then I though to myself, what would happen if that man would have to eats its own words? That kind of attitude and arrogance is what made this program almost a disaster, so to congratulate an almost disaster for finally complying, it's not correct. I am glad, but I cannot congratulate. I'll congratulate when Boeing get's in track delivering the airplanes!

I don't mean to put Boeing down, but I don't think you would congratulate a student that should have graduated 3 years ago and finally got his GED... So that's how I feel about this thing. Glad, but not worth a congrats!

My feelings about the current management are not too fond. That said, the hard working people who worked on this plane day after day, month after month DO deserve congrats. They busted their asses off to get this thing certified.

The student or Boeing could have quit anytime. But they perservered and got the assignment done. Maybe not for a good job but congratulations for having the guts to finish. Do people boo the last place finisher of a marathon who took 7 hours instead of the winner's 2.5. I'd be happy to finish the 385 yard part.  

Congratulations, Boeing. I look forward a 2,500 plane fleet.

Finally. Hopefully this experience doesn't hurt innovation too much in the future, scaring Boeing and others away from trying something new. Had Boeing scheduled this program correctly from the start, it easily could have been certified in 5-6 years. But by trying to make it happen in 4, they created a situation where it took 7.

Doesn't mean that new programs still can't be done in 5-6, or that innovation still shouldn't be pushed. Just means that Boeing made some really bad management and planning blunders.

BTW - It has to be addressed: Where are CaptainX and his ilk now? And all the people who think they were right and keep saying how they've been proven right by certification delays? After all, they said it would never be certified and would eventually be scrapped, etc. And that didn't happen. Just because they, like many others, said it would be delayed doesn't mean they actually knew anything. Simply disgruntled people with a grudge who were "right" by proclaiming delays.

(And no, I'm not counting ClickHappy here. He actually had insider info and never proclaimed doom for the program, only major delays in first flight due to manufacturing issues he was getting wind of. He WAS right...   )

Hate seeing negatively in this thread, this is a joyous occasion and should be celebrated. It took longer than expected, but it's here. Just like trying to get pregnant, you don't bitch about how long it took, you relish in the moment of arrival. Just be happy the new technology is ready to go.

Ever had a friend whose life is stunted because they driak too much? Or known somebody whose family life was so dire that they found it difficult to achieve as would otherwise be expected? No? Then you move in rarified company. Getting a GED, even long after "graduation age" can be a very significant event if it represents the upward trajectory of a life that was headed down. For the rest of us who have known such people, we often celebrate what to *you* may be trivial, because such accomplishment represents movement in a positive direction and we hope/believe that it is but one point on a long line of personal improvement. People who offer encouragement to each other are called "friends". But there's a famous saying, one that begins "With friends like you..."

Does this analogy hold up for Boeing and the 787's certification? No, because Boeing is a for-profit motive with stakeholders who expect a return. In that light, certification will be greeted more with relief than congratulations. But I for one am excited about it because it means a new airframe is about to enter service. This is a special moment for *us*, even if it is long overdue.
