So we have three delivered in 2011, with two more expected to be delivered this week, all of which are for NH. The mix, I believe, is three domestic and two international birds.
Boeing has yet to give guidance on any additional 787 deliveries for January, but more are expected. The final certification of the GEnx propulsion system (plane + engine) is expected in January and this could see at least one each delivery to JA and AI.
The CHS FAL is online and assembling aircraft, with first deliveries scheduled towards the middle of the year. PAE is moving from 2.5 per month to 3.5 per month.
Boeing has a few dozen 787s at PAE that are undergoing re-work. In the case of the earliest builds, this rework is extensive and they may be pushed back in favor of completing later builds that require less work. So some of these early builds might not be delivered until the later part of 2012, even though they were first assembled years prior.

It's looking like Boeing will be able to deliver JA806A (L/N40, ZA117) this month but not definitive yet. I personally don't think they'll be able to delvier any GEnx machines until next month. It depends on when they can finish off certification testing using ZA236.

I'm a bit confused about all of this, so apologies if I'm asking something obvious, but what's the status on the JL birds? I know BOS-NRT is supposed to start in April (aren't JL already selling seats for that route?) -- what will they do if the aircraft for which they've sold seats is delayed beyond the start of that service?

Quoting 747ata32 (Reply 7): How much 787's has Boeing build until today? Are they all stored at PAE or are some ferried to other places like MWH and MHV?
Are there recent photo's available from PAE showing the stored 787's?
All but one are in Everett. One in San antonio for re-work and change incorporation. See Matt Cawby's site for pics at Everett:
Quote: Boeing planned to deliver about 15-20 787 and 747-8s by year-end as part of an overall 2011 target of about 480 deliveries, with the bulk of the newer model deliveries made up of 747-8Fs. However, investment banking firm Sterne Agee says, “Based on our checks, we expect Boeing to report only 11 deliveries in total for these two programs for 2011, with only two 787 deliveries versus expectations of at least five.”
I guess we'll know for sure after Boeing's dog and pony show tomorrow.
