Boeing delays 787 program for third time

Telco

Boeing Co announced the third major delay on its 787 Dreamliner, citing slow progress on assembly and continuing problems with suppliers, putting the program about 15 months behind schedule.

The US plane maker, which vies with EADS unit Airbus for dominance of the commercial airplane market, pushed its target for the first test flight of the new plane to the fourth quarter of this year, as opposed to its last target of end-June 2008.

Boeing said the first 787 delivery, to Japan's All Nippon Airways Co, would take place in the third quarter of next year, as opposed to its previous target of early 2009. The first 787 delivery was originally planned for May 2008. (Reuters)
