Which other airliner receives the 787 in 2011? And when?

Also, is there a website of upcoming deliveries?

Which Other Airline Receives The 787 In 2011?

Mon Oct 03, 2011 3:03 pm

I have not seen any websites or threads with a list of possible upcoming deliveries. ANA is going to take another one within a month has been posted and JAL will take one before the end of the year as well. I think that AI may take one before the end of the year (if they can pay for it  )...

Anyone with more information bout when the next 787s are scheduled to be delivered it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Thanks so much for that information boeingguy. DO you know by chance which line numbers will be handed over?

I wanted to link to a previous thread covering this topic:
Who Gets The 787 After NH? (by alexinwa Aug 26 2011 in Civil Aviation)

Also, there is an interesting article from the aspire-aviation blog that has some information saying only about 7 dream liners may be delivered before the end of 2011
http://www.aspireaviation.com/2011/0...m-becoming-reality-its-road-ahead/

All things 787 is also a great source of line number information as well as current articles on the 787:
http://nyc787.blogspot.com/

Based on all this info:

The article from aspire aviation suggests that line number 7, 8 and 9 are the only airplanes in the first 20 produced that will go prior to 2012 due to the amount of rework needed on some of these aircraft?

For ANA: LN# 8 (ZA101) has been delivered and LN #7 (ZA100) and 9 (ZA 102) are being redid for delivery soon from what the aspire aviation post suggests. Also, LN#24 (ZA103) has had its first flight and is painted in the same special livery as LN#8 so presumably will be the next to be delivered to ANA. There are other airplanes destined for ANA but may need significant rework still?

Royal Air Maroc: has LN # 17 (ZA150 and 19 (ZA151) being worked on, so perhaps LN#19 will be delivered before 2012?

LAN: has LN#16 (ZA531) which has exited the shop as well as LN#48 (ZA532) that was scheduled to start final assembly last week. I am guessing that the earlier one will be readied? I would guess that the one just starting final assembly will not be able to make it by the end of the year. ***edit*** also LN#10 (ZA530) thanks for pointing out the omission***

JAL: LN#23 (ZA177) is down at Lackland AFB being refurbished for delivery, possibly soon?

IA: If they can figure out how to pay for them --> Air India Has 'no Money' To Pay For 787s (by Part147 Sep 12 2011 in Civil Aviation)

Air India has several aircraft out of final assembly: LN# 25 (ZA230), 26 (ZA231), 28 (ZA232), 29 (ZA233), 30 (ZA 234), 32 (ZA 235), 35 (ZA236) with LN #46 (ZA237) having started final assembly in Charleston SC. I wonder which of these is being readied for first delivery. LN#29 (ZA233 had its first flight on July 31st(?) so perhaps would be the first to be delivered to Air India.

Please anyone feel free to edit of share new information. In addition to sources on Matt Cawby's blog: http://kpae.blogspot.com/ was also a major source of pictures and information. I hope I got all the line numbers and ZA numbers right. I apologize if any are incorrect. I hope to hear from other people excited about this beautiful aircraft finally being delivered to customers all over the world! Cheers, TAK

LAN also has LN#10:

LAN does not expect to incorporate any B-787-8s into the fleet this year, only three B-767-316ERs are coming this year!

Thank you for picking that up, I goofed. I edited that as well as the ZA numbers for the LAN aircraft which I had wrong as well. Sorry to hear that those aircraft are not expected this year  . Oh well.

LAN expects to receive its first B-787-8 by the end of Q1 2012. Due to the delays surrounding the B-787s, LAN opted to order more B-767-316ERs from Boeing, (next year alone, LAN will receive 7 new B-767-316ERs from Boeing, along with two new B-777Fs).

Just saw this article that says ANA plans to receive a total of 4 787s before the end of the year. We will see...

Tak, is there any ETA on the China Southern deliveries? There are at least three parked and waiting, including one in the full scheme with a B registration.

Good question, I don't know the answer to this. The most recent source I could find is this: http://www.centreforaviation.com/ana...liveries-over-next-12-months-59486 Which claims first delivery in first half of 2012, so we will see.

The article from the centreforaviation also cites 4 787s being delivered to ANA by the end of 2011. This article here: http://blog.seattlepi.com/aerospace/...eing-787-long-haul-service-jan-21/ also talks about ANA initiating service to FRA. This implies that they would have 4 aircraft since the first two aircraft will have the domestic configuration and 2 aircraft would probably be needed to service this route.

Does anyone know which of the ANA aircraft are being fitted out in their long haul seating configuration? Based on the reports I would have guessed that the early aircraft are not being selected for this, but reportedly LN 7 and 9 are being readied for delivery as well as LN # 24. Looking forward to hearing from anyone about any intro they have about upcoming deliveries, Cheers

TAK

LAN Airlines is expected to be the first carrier to operate the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on RNP approaches. LAN will operate the B-787s on RNP approaches initially into its hub at the Lima Jorge Chávez International Airport.

Quote:
LAN Airlines plans to begin using advanced performance-based navigation approaches at Lima International Airport by the end of this year, and the carrier says these are likely to be the first such procedures operated by the Boeing 787. The carrier is scheduled to begin taking delivery of its 787s in early 2012, and while it is not the first customer for this aircraft, it is expected to be the first to operate 787s on RNP approaches.

Hi All

I know ANA will eventually have three different 787 cabin configurations (domestic (78P), short-haul intl and long-haul intl (787)). Does anyone happen to know which regos will have which configuration?

Cheers

Even this is about 2012, not 2011, any more precise idea when LO gets its 787s next year? After all, it will be the very first 787 EIS on a European airline.

Just read on flightblogger: http://www.flightglobal.com/blogs/flightblogger/ that ANA's second 787 was officially delivered today and will fly to japan in a few days. It was LN#24 that was delivered. Only 819 left  .... seriously I hope Boeing gets these airplanes moving into the hands of customers ASAP!
