WSJ: Boeing May Increase 787 Production Rate

Mon Jun 13, 2005 10:59 pm

This is a short article, so it is here in its entirety, per fair use.

From The Wall Street Journal:

PARIS (Dow Jones)--Boeing Co. is considering boosting the number of 787 airplanes it will make in the first two years of production in order to meet demand.

Mike Bair, Boeing's head of the 787 program, said in a briefing at the Paris Air Show Monday that he's looking at ways to hit target production levels more quickly in 2008 and 2009. Currently, Boeing plans to make 95 787s in those two years.

Pretty much the same thing was also reported on CNBC at 12:30EST during the Paris Airshow Report. Had a nice picture of the Qatar A350.

Well, if they can do it properly, it could mean a few more sales. If I were an airline I would hate to have to wait until 2010 or 11 for a new bird.

What would the increaes in production rates do for EIS of the 787-9 and 787-3?

The EIS should be independent of the production rate.
