AI is slated to pick-up its 3rd (1st N. Charleston built) 787 next week per a Boeing official.

http://www.postandcourier.com/articl...delivered-next-week-executive-says

September 787 deliveries are shaping up to be a banner month. This will look good for the next earnings call. I hope Boeing can sustain the momentum.

Been reading that the supply chain is already producing at 5/month and that this will work its way into the FAL's by year end. Apparently, new build deliveries will lag behind this rate due to post FAL testing and prep time averaging longer than expected.

The AWSNBN so far only secured bridge financing. If they don't find a lessor for their sell and lease back plan, the whole deal will fall apart. Unless the Indian tax payer comes to the rescue, that is.

The guestimate was she would be delivered yesterday, but that was before the GEnx issue so it's possible the plane is still undergoing engine inspection or UA have decided to delay delivery.

Very unlikely since the frame (LN53) just flew yesterday. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/BOE288 If it was the bird with the problem I would expect that the frame would be grounded for an engine change.

My guess on bird with the problem is LN43 for China Southern. It is one that has GE engines attached and has languished in "pre-flight prep" for quite some time now and dropped off delivery forecasts.

Busy day as three '87s flew: ZA135 for ANA, ZA461 to QR and ZA264 for Ethiopian. Probably had to do one more Boeing test flight due to a sqwak that prevented it from flying to Ft. Worth yesterday. I won't be surprised if it flew down there tomorrow or Friday.

Apparently so. Matt says it was an EWR flight.

Looks like it flew a long enough mission that it could have made it to Ft. Worth.

Because that's what happens, both with mature programs and the 787. They lay out a schedule at the start of the delivery preparation, but it evolves depending on what they find out during testing and customer walks based on what they have to fix. This schedule is on its 7th revision now.

I've said it before but I'll say it again. Ignore the exact date. It's taken from a snapshot of an evolving schedule. Only the month matters.

No. We all know about AI; QR is possibly the most demanding and unpredictable airline customer on earth; and UA is only two days behind last week's schedule, not enough to worry about.

I should have been a bit clearer. I can access the Everett Delivery Center schedules and there was no evidence in that of a delay caused by the GE engines.

They're refurbishing the cabin so I could see that taking some time as if they have to replace a seat in Row 6, I expect they need to remove Rows 1-5 on that side first.

But seriously ... the 787 will fly to Charleston once the refurbishment is completed. There it will get connectivity (WiFi etc) installed within 30 days. We should see the delivery flight by the end of November.

Yes, and Boeing was against it. But the customer has the final word and now it's his fault.

Maybe LN/64 A7-BCL can overtake A7-BCB but that frame is still sitting on the flightline.

Interesting is the absence of U-Turn Al's typical ranting in the press about delays. Is his silence an admission that QR is the reason for the slow turn-around since FARN?

My guess is that ANA will get 2, JAL 1, UA 1, ET 1 and AI 1. 9 total for September is a huge improvement compared to recent months.

Like I posted in the last thread or maybe number 7, some airlines, don't fly any customer flights before delivery.

However, that is with the well established 737 line, so I doubt an airline taking delivery of an almost brand new type, one which will be brand new to them at delivery, will not fly customer flights, though it could be possible.

Hopefully it will be in Houston very very soon. I know they are announced, but specific route will actually be the first to be flown? IAH-?

It could be a combination of aerial photography and final testing on the software, etc. Wonder what the plans are for it at BFI and then thereafter. Right now since it's flying under a UA code, I'm assuming delivery has been made.

It's not really "for flight test" so much as just really convenient. Grant County is an old USAF base turned public-use with the related giant runway...Boeing, C-17's from McChord AFB, even JAL in the past, all used it for the combination of large-jet infrastructure and very very low traffic. It's got a Millionaire (very nice folks) and a convenient piece of VFR training airspace (the North Training Area) just a few minutes away.

If you want to fly big jets around Puget Sound for any reason, Grant County or the offshore warning areas are the best bets.

Nice work Boeing in getting 787s out the door, we have seen 9 deliveries in the past 6 weeks with a good chance of seeing a few more this week! Given the fact that 4 of those were for new operators, it is more amazing; I assume it is more complicated and time consuming for a first delivery!

I am guessing that the number of 787s loitering around PAE has finally decreased? I would love to see a chart on this! It also seems like the time between first flight and delivery is more consistent with about a 3-4 week average...some delivering 2-3 weeks after first flight!

I'm lost here. Your blog post is speaking about the last quarter (October, November, December). JA815A is - as far as I know - still scheduled for this month. So ANA will have 15 787 aircraft by the end of the third quarter. Then another 3 in Q4, makes 18 total. At least, that's how I understand your blog post?

There was a story about it on the Boeing news site in late May. It gave a bit more information about the accident. The guy was walking alongside the tyres of the main gear holding a chock, and that at the time Boeing procedure was to have a person do this so that the chock can be put under the tyres if the airplane became disconnected during a tow. He doesn't know how he ended up under the tyres but is adamant that he wasn't using a phone as had been speculated. Boeing has since discontinued the use of chock walkers on active airport taxiways.

The guy has been fitted with prosthetic legs and says he aims to be back working at Boeing within a year.

BAs first 380 apparently now scheduled for delivery in July 2013 has recently been 'glued together' and its tail painted. I know 787s will/should take much less time to build but am keen to know how long I have to wait for my first sight of a 787 with a BA/Thomson tail.

I stand corrected. With ZA135 being delivered later on this week they'll have 15 and I do project that they'll get three more in the 4th quarter which will make for 18 and half their 787-8 order. Thanks!

Boeing has 1 787s that is ready for test flights and three more in change incorporation and pretty much well on their way through that process so I think they'll be delivered in teh months that they're expecting.

According to the follow ing press release from Boeing, they've either have delivered 24 or 25 787s since the first delivery one year ago (trying to get clarification) which means that there was at least one possibly 2 deliveries since September 23 when ZA119 (LN 69, JA814A) was delivered. I'mtrying to find out now.

Boeing Celebrates First Anniversary of First 787 Delivery

EVERETT, Wash., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today marks the one year anniversary of the first delivery of the first Boeing (NYSE: BA) 787 Dreamliner to Japan's ANA (All Nippon Airways). Since then, Boeing has delivered 25 Dreamliners to six different customers.

"One year ago today we reached a significant milestone in Boeing and ANA's partnership," said Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We are grateful for the support and confidence that ANA has placed in Boeing as the launch customer of the 787 Dreamliner."

"ANA has helped validate the airplane as truly game-changing," said Conner. "All of our 787 customers have been an integral part of making the 787 a success. We are committed to each of them as they put the Dreamliner into service."

Thousands of Boeing employees and dignitaries celebrated the historic delivery in a ceremony on Sept. 26 that highlighted the pride and dedication of the team that created the airplane and the cooperation and support of the airline.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the first commercial jetliner made primarily of advanced composite materials. It offers exceptional passenger comfort features including cleaner air, a lower cabin altitude, higher humidity, bigger windows that dim electronically and more overhead storage space. Airlines appreciate its fuel efficiency, which is 20 percent better than other airplanes in its class. This fuel efficiency also results in 20 percent lower carbon emissions, helping Boeing to achieve its environmental objectives.

It seems pretty likely that UA will be able to stick to their plan, especially since they will have at least 2 787s by 11/4/2012. IMHO, it seems they are being EXTREMELY conservative in introducing this new type to their fleet. They took delivery on 9/22/2012 and won't be putting it into service until 11/4/2012, 43 days later! By comparison, back in 1995, it only took UA 23 days to put the 777 into service after delivery; and that was the first 777 ever! They will need to replace the tires soon from all of the kicking being done.

Does anyone have a breakdown by year of the 787s UA is scheduled to take delivery of?

I know they are scheduled for five in 2012, how about 2013, 2014 etc.. What year are the first of the 25 sUA 787-8s scheduled to arrive, and 787-9s?

I haven't seen anything to indicate that the sUA order would be delivered prior to 2016 as originally announced.

All the necessary paperwork was completed Wednesday evening USA time, and the aircraft has been sitting at the delivery building since Wednesday morning, so I would have expected it to have been delivered Thursday. However, considering that VT-ANI is still in CHS to my knowledge, no way to tell for sure...

Expect this airplane to be there for the next 10-14 days getting painted then back to CHS for more test flights (probably C-1, C-2) then delivery.

Sounds like Jim McNerney will be in CHS on Monday so it jives with celebrating the first delivery from the CHS plant which will be to Air India. So I concur with your assessment of Oct. 1 beingthe delivery date for this airplane.

Both physical delivery and flyout will happen tomorrow. I am not sure about the status of contractual delivery, but I don't believe it has happened yet either. Papers are ready to go though - some signatures and transfer of money is all that would be left if the contractual delivery has not occurred yet.
