Boeing has again placed its stake in the ground for the eighth time, marking the third quarter of 2011 for first delivery of its flagship 787 Dreamliner to Japan’s All Nippon Airways, though the company says answers to larger questions will have to wait.
- Beyond first delivery, how many 787s is the company aiming to deliver in 2011?
- Will 180 minute ETOPS certification be achieved along with initial FAA/EASA certification?When will the first 787-9 be delivered?
- Is Boeing’s plan still to reach 10 deliveries per month in 2013?
- How long will it take to rework the existing 787 fleet beyond the electrical hardware and software changes?
