With Seven Months to go, 787 Remains on Target

Reuters reports that Boeing CEO Jim McNerney is confident that the first 787 will be delivered to All Nippon Airways (ANA) by the company’s most recent estimate of the third quarter of this year.

Speaking on cable news outlet, CNBC, the CEO also said that the company expects to deliver the 787, dubbed the “Dreamliner”, to Air India by the end of the year, suggesting that delivery deadlines for the new plane to customers other than ANA are still intact.

The report doesn’t represent any new news but considering the amount of delays the 787 has already experienced and the approaching delivery date for the first plane, such public affirmation from the CEO suggests that Boeing is not anticipating any further delays.

McNerney also mentioned during the broadcast that Boeing is expecting defense revenue to slow down as governments mull massive budget cuts to their defense departments, a key source of revenue for Boeing.
