About 55 of Boeing Co's 787 Dreamliner jets could have a recently discovered flaw in the fuselage, the company said on Wednesday. [...] Boeing will decide whether to go ahead with plans to produce a stretched, or longer, version of the 787 Dreamliner by the end of this year, Albaugh said.
CEO Jim McNerney projected that Boeing will deliver 585 to 600 jets in 2012 — more than Airbus' announced goal of 570 deliveries. [...]
Analyst Carter Copeland of Barclays Capital calculates that the first 787 delivered last September cost just shy of $400 million to build; each of the next 45 or so cost Boeing an average $310 million; and the latest six or seven jets being built have an average cost of $250 million to $275 million.
Air India breaks out its individual prices ranging from $109.6 million for its first 787 to $111.1 million for its seventh. Such prices, which include engines valued in the filing at around $16 million appear to have escalated over time to account for changes in commodity prices and inflation since the airline firmed its order for 27 787s in December 2005.
Boeing will deliver only two more 787s the rest of this year. The two aircraft are both destined for ANA and are late build 787s. L/N 31 is already out on the Everett flightline has had some ground test done but has yet to run its engines for the first time. Boeing plans to fly this airplane on its B-1 check flight sometime next week and deliver around the 2nd week of December.
Boeing and ANA have signed the formal documents completing the contractual delivery of the first 787 Dreamliner. Celebrations to mark this historic milestone begin tomorrow in Everett with a delivery ceremony followed by flyaway of the airplane on Tuesday.
Airbus has said the carbon A350 will eventually outshine the 777 because it will be lighter and cheaper to run, while Boeing was expected to make similar claims about the 787-10 against the A330, which stems from roughly the same era as the 777.
Now that 787 deliveries have started, many are wondering what 787 deliveries will look like going forward. I've put together a quick spreadsheet in Google Docs to estimate the number of deliveries Boeing can possibly make from now to the end of 2012. I'm taking into account the current inventory of 787s that Boeing has assembled but still has to finish change incorporation, 787s that have yet to finish final assembly and also go through change incorporation, and finally 787s that have yet to be assembled but would not have to go through the change incorporation process.
Boeing emphasizes its selection of its initial accounting quantity is not determined in an effort to "maintain a position of profitability", but rather is determined through a "multi-diciplinary process"..."independently of the profitability calculation in accordance with GAAP and rigorous, externally audited procedures."
Boeing delivers the first 787 Dreamliner to All Nippon Airways (ANA) this week, but it has spent a staggering amount to get this far: more than $32 billion, according to a conservative estimate by The Seattle Times.
Atlas Air has canceled orders for three early Boeing 747-8 Freighters “due to delays and performance considerations,” the company announced Wednesday. It still expects to take nine of the aircraft: three this year, four in 2012 and two in 2013.
