Where Is This 787?

Fri Oct 05, 2012 6:02 pm

As smoothly as things have been going for the PAE and CHS lines as of late, (depending who you speak to) I was curious to see that this beautiful bird still hasn't left the nest or has it. Any updates?

As reported in the 787 Production Thread, somebody in the comments section of another site stated that there is some row between CAAC and the FAA and/or Boeing which is holding up deliveries of aircraft destined for China. I can't find any news about it, though. And in early September, China Southern confirmed it will fly the 787-8 on its Sydney-Guangzhou-London route.

I can't find any public record of any dispute. Right now, it's just some person's comment.
