PIP2, not 3.
will the first 789 be fitted with Package C engines or might they be installed later?

CZ's second Dreamliner B-2733 will be delivered as CSN733，CHS-BFI-CAN
|Quoting NYC777 (Reply 156):|
CSN now has 20% of it's 787 fleet with another 50% waiting in the wings (pun unintended).

PAE to PAE for an hour and a half most likely just a FCF after return to production status, we'll see.
|Quoting hkcanadaexpat (Reply 163):|
So current tally is:
> 21 788s (12 sCOs + 9 sUAs) -> 6 delivered so far are all sCOs
> 24 789s (18 sCOs + 6 sUAs)
> 20 7810s (20 sUAs)
|Quoting tortugamon (Reply 164):|
Are you suggesting the 6 delivered 787-8s are not included in the 21 tally that you list? I thought the 21 were outstanding orders not total orders. That leaves 18 orders for the -9 rather than 24.

Flight global was wrong.

Nope he's right.

L/N 123 – VH-VKA – 9/xx/2013 – QF #1 Awaiting first flight
|Quoting KarelXWB (Reply 175):|
|Quoting sunrisevalley (Reply 171):|
so that is 24 aircraft awaiting first flight ! Are all these ready for a crew to climb aboard , fire it up and takeoff.... or aren't they .
|Quoting 7673mech (Reply 177):|
Right now - it is 2-3 weeks before they go to fuel.
|Quoting tortugamon (Reply 176):|
Another 'five star airline' without first class on their 787s. I imagine that will change on the larger 787s. I believe CZ is the only one to do it so far and I think that was only 4 seats. But Y+ has been relatively common.
|Quoting KarelXWB (Reply 183):|
I assume the whole flight will be CHS-BFI-HAK?
|Quoting KarelXWB (Reply 187):|
Hm nope, so far it will be CHS-BFI-MWH-BFI. Training flight maybe?
|Quoting hkcanadaexpat (Reply 192):|
"Hainan Airlines is expected to introduce another three 787 planes this year"
If this holds, it looks like there will still be a number of Hainan frames parked in Everett well into the new year. There are currently 2 frames ready for customer flights in Charleston, 1 basically ready in Everett (needs a battery mod check flight before customer flight), 1 stored in Everett (needing of paint etc), a 5th one to come off the production line at Everett in late August and 6th one coming off the production line at Everett in December. So 3 to be delivered this year and 3 to be carried into next year.

I guess the Civil Aviation Administration of China makes the decisions, not HU.
|Quoting FriendlySkies (Reply 196):|
but isn't there some sort of contractual issue with basically perpetually deferring deliveries? Is there anything stopping Boeing from offering these frames to another customer, and telling China to get back in line?

Seems like a pretty terrible way to do business, that's a lot of inventory sitting on the books.
