With the announcement by Monarch that their 787's will be 30 months late with delivery of the first aircraft in 2013 'at best', what delays are expected to the delivery of the 787's to First Choice.

From Thomson Financial in Berlin:
Boeing Co has signalled a further nine-month delay to clients awaiting delivery of its 787 Dreamliner launch, German newspaper Die Welt reported Saturday.

Contacted by AFP in London, a Boeing spokesman refused to comment on the report, which cited a letter sent by the company explaining that orders will now be fulfilled a total of 27 months late.

On April 9, Boeing said the first flight would move into the fourth quarter of this year rather than the end of the second, with first delivery planned for the third quarter of 2009 instead of the first.

The latest delay primarily affects companies expecting to take delivery from 2012 and beyond, Die Welt spelled out, citing Air Europe, Gulf Air, Vietnam Airlines and British Airways.

Etihad may be one of those carriers who has ordered 787's, and is closing in on a 747 deal too.

Considering the tremendous success Boeing had with the production of the 777, how could they have got it so badly wrong with the 787.

British Airways is also rumoured to be closing in on a 777-300ER deal to augment its fleet in lieu of the 787 delays.

Heard its been designated the "plastic pig". Hope Boeing isn't going to be the reliant of the aircraft industry.
