BA 787-10

I thought BA was supposed to be taking delivery of it first 787-10 this month.

Has delivery been pushed back again?

So apparently G-ZBLA delivery has been delayed again.

Does anyone know what is wrong with the aircraft?

Might not be anything wrong with it at all. They might not want to take delivery yet as they can't sell the seats, plus they might not have anywhere to park it.

I'm hearing that both G-ZBJA and G-ZBJB could be delivered next week. Does anyone have any more info?

I think you mean G-ZBLA and G-ZBLB (both BJA and BJB are -8s and were the first 787s delivered to the airline back in 2013). Nothing confirmed yet as it happens.

champ

Had the edge been constructed correctly, they could have easily towed the aircraft out of the mud.

You must have a longer lens than me mr T ;-) I took an anaemic couple of shots from a distance, and even managed to garner a dirty look from the lady living across the street who probably thought I was spying on her.
