Boeing Confirms 787 First Flight Delay

Boeing confirmed a delay of up to three months in the first flight of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner during a program briefing. The new date has moved to the November-December timeframe.


According to 787 Program Manager Mike Blair, the delivery deadline of May 2008 to customer All Nippon Airways provides little room for further redesign or other delays as the travel work and coding challenges have already consumed nearly all the "buffer" in the test program thus far.
