Boeing's Saddler Gives 787 Update

Fri Sep 08, 2006 11:46 pm

Craig Saddler was speaking at a conference in NYC and gave the following updates:

Firm + committments = 420
Continuing investment to reduce weight
DEVELOPMENT OF THE 787 IS STILL ON SCHEDULE
Sold out through 2011 and 2012 is filling fast
787-10 approval is for 2012 (can anyone verify this, I think it was missreported)

This was taken off of Bloomberg feed so I will post a link when I find it.

Here's the link:
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?p...=conews&tkr=BA:US&sid=abVDtCLX.LX8

It doesn't mention the 787-10 that info was taken from the headline that appeared on Bloomberg so I can't link to it.

The 787-10 hasn't been launched yet so there's no official date when it will enter service. However if they launch it anytime in the next 2-3 years it should be ready by 2012. The 787-3 and 787-9 will both enter service in 2010, two years after the 787-8. The 787-10 will probably enter service about two years after the -9.

Could imply orders have been booked but not yet announced?

I don't think it would be firm orders but LoIs (which won't show up on Boeing's order totals). If they had firmed unidentified orders they would have been listed under "Unidentified."

So I guess the CFO of Boeing is lying today because we all know that the program is at least 6 months behind schedule...  Wink

Yup, and wait for another 1 billion dollars fine by SEC for failing to reveal the development problem to the investors.  Wink

They are tired of getting their tail feathers singed with their own words. Logic is a good thing and bad arguments are fun to point out. Especially when the motive is transparent.
