When Will ZA100 Line#7 787 Be Delivered?

Fri Jan 13, 2012 3:11 pm

I see on "All THings 787" blog spread sheet that line #8 ZA101 and line #9 ZA102 are now delivered to ANA. I was wondering if anyone knows when line #7 will be delivered to ANA? The spreadsheet says that it is at Everett Tower Apron, which makes it sound like it is just parked without engines, but I am not familiar with Everett Field.

It will depend on how much effort Boeing puts into getting it ready. As the first production frame, it will have the most change incorporation re-work to be done. Since LN#9 is ready for delivery, and it likely had about as much re-work needed, Boeing can get it done sooner if they throw enough time and men at it, but because it needs to much time and manpower to get ready, Boeing could get more later-build 787s ready with the same effort.

Cant believe debt ridden and financially unstable Air India have their 787s being finished off on the production line...

Because the Indian Government has guaranteed payment.

What price did Air India get there 787's at because I saw a document a few days back showing that they go them at reduced price but couldn't remember what the prices were? Does anyone know what they were?

Average is $110 million. At the time of the order, the average list for a 787-8 was $146 million.
