Boeing Not Concerned About 787 Problems

Thu Jul 20, 2006 10:21 pm

Boeing remains adamant that its 787 production timetable will not slip, despite admitting that some undisclosed aspects of the programme are behind schedule.

Speaking at the Farnborough air show, Boeing 787 general manager Mike Bair said: “Not every aspect of the programme is on schedule but we’ve got enough going on to support the commitments we made to our customers.” He does not specify which aspects have fallen behind schedule

“I don’t know all the details of what’s happening with the A380 but, if it is wiring, then the 787’s wireless in-flight entertainment system means there is a huge reduction in complexity,” says Bair.

wireless IFE? thats sounds pretty cool to me....

"Boeing Commercial Airplanes chief executive Alan Mulally shrugged off concerns that aspects of the 787 timetable had slipped, stating that the airframer’s close partnership with suppliers would allow it to concentrate resources in areas which needed them. "

right now the suppliers are the only ones that can delay the 787.

It has been noted that some suppliers are tardy...
