Speculation: Who Will Take 787 LN04-LN06?

Sat Jun 12, 2010 6:27 pm

First things first - it's not a rumor, it's pure speculation. But: there is this article in Polish (http://news.money.pl/artykul/pierwsze;dreamlinery;w;europie;trafia;do;lot-u,200,0,631752.html#utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss) that says, that LOT will take three first Dreamliners on NOVEMBER. But, according to this post on All Things 787 (http://nyc787.blogspot.com/2010/06/first-43.html) all LN's from 07 to 49 are taken now, so there is no way in hell for LOT to get one, right?
But wait! LN04, LN05 and LN06 are waiting for someone to pick it up! Pure coincidence, wrong article, or...?

None of them will be ready for delivery in November. These are test aircrafts and needs a lot of modification if they are going to be put into commercial service

Do they mean November 2011, maybe? (I can't read Polish...)

Could be - there is only "Three first machines will go to the airline on November", but there is no mention which year :/

Still planned before year end per Boeing.

LO ordered Rolls-Royce Trents with their 787-8s, so that would mean LN005 and LN006 would need an engine swap.

I'm still inclined to think they are going to VIP customers.

As of several weeks ago, the first 3 787's will be coming Q3-Q4 of 2011. This was discussed pretty extensively in the Polish Aviation thread.
