Sources: ANA to see its first 787 in September

Boeing 787 Dreamliner N787EX ZA002

My first of a few reports on the Boeing earnings call:
Boeing holds firm to 787 production ramp-up
Boeing aims to deliver a dozen or more 787s in 2011, with industry sources pointing to September for first delivery, while the airframer maintains its original plan of building 10 aircraft per month by the end of 2013.
 
The airframer declined to elaborate on its the third quarter guidance or confirm the September delivery target. However, while reporting its full year earnings, Boeing says it intends to deliver a combined total of between 25 and 40 747-8s and 787s this year, with a roughly 50-50 split in its guidance. Boeing says these deliveries will be a part of the 485 to 500 aircraft produced in 2011.

    The 787 at last looks like it is being made in a tunnel that actually has an end in which to have a light. My pleased.

    I hope there is a light at the end of this tunnel! To be three+ years late is a disaster. What gets delivered first? 787-8 or 747-8F Now I hope they can go on and get the -9 and -10 out the door in a much better timely fashion… Only if they don’t use Alenia!
