Boeing and its suppliers are said to be reviewing the timetable for delivery of some of the 787s already built due to delays in bringing the aircraft up to a certified production standard.
A number of the problems to be rectified on the 22 production-standard aircraft which Boeing has scattered around its facilities at Everett include cabin condensation issues, resolving the horizontal stabilizer workmanship issues, and incorporating changes to the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines.
Boeing CEO Jim McNerney recently noted during the company’s third quarter earnings call that it was “intensely focused on managing the change incorporation process on airplanes already built or in flow.” In addition, he noted that the early aircraft on its delivery schedule “comprised of a mix of airplanes coming off the production line and airplanes completing the change incorporation process.”
Boeing is currently maintaining its latest delivery schedule, while some carriers including Jetstar and Qatar Airways have recently brought forward their planned deliveries of 787s to take advantage of slots opened up by customers who have delayed their deliveries.
