More delays for the 787 program
The problems in the 787 program doesn´t seem to end. The flightblogger reports about further delays in the assembly of Delayliner, sorry … Dreamliner One:
According to several sources inside the 787 program and others familiar with the schedule, assembly completion of Dreamliner One is now tentatively targeted for early October, a slip of about five weeks. Assembly completion was initially set for August 31, just four days prior to the expiration of the IAM's three-year contract.
This retargeting was done before the union of the aircraft workers voted for a strike. I really start to think, that there won´t be any deliveries in 2009, really bad new for an aircraft that was initially planned to bring guests to the Olympic games in Beijing ….
