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 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 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.
Boeing Co.’s 787 Dreamliner will be delivered to Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways on Sept. 25, three years behind schedule, after today’s regulatory approvals of the world’s first plastic-composite jet.
Boeing Co., set to get government approval of its new 787 Dreamliner this week and deliver the first jet next month, expects to spend most of 2012 unwinding the record inventory built during three years of delays.
Boeing's final month of 747-8 freighter and 787 first delivery milestones has emerged, placing the handover to its patient launch customers as early as 7 and 22 September, respectively, say those familiar with the airframer's plans.
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.
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 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.
With Chicago-based aircraft manufacturer Boeing securing the type certificate and its production certificate 700 from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification, the first delivery to the revolutionary airplane’s launch customer, Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA), is finally in sight.
