    I think the next big hurdle will be 10 aircraft a month. It is hard to imagine all of those 787′s parked around Paine Field having as much modification as predicted. Looks like San Antonio is going to have work for years to come.

    But I am happy Boeing can move on… 787-9/-10???, 777 NG, 737MAX. Hopefully the 787 derivatives don’t turn into a 747-8F; so many changes it took a wing re-design with major delays and cost. The one that has me wondering the most is the 777NG. Not a lot has been said, will it be a composite “panel liner” like the original A350? Or just a stretch and a new wing. One thing I would love to see is a common cockpit, much like what Airbus does, derived from the 787/747-8.

    Whoops, sorry 747-8 cockpit is not common with the 787. Sorry my bad, mis-information.
