787 latest update

Boeing has been very quiet regarding the latest certification and delivery dates on the 787 since the nearly disastrous electrical fire on a test aircraft in November.

Jim McNerney, Chairman, President and CEO, now has been on American TV and was still not able to give a definitive answer to the question that lead customer ANA and the air travel community was waiting for.

"Over the next few weeks we'll get the production schedule better understood as we work with the FAA on the fix to the incident we had on the Dreamliner," he said in the interview.  “We expect to know over the next few weeks what impact the 787 Dreamliner electrical glitch will have on the plane's production and delivery schedule.” www.boeing.com/commercial
