Boeing loses 26 orders for 787 and other jets

Cancellations outnumber new orders for 787s this year.

By Michelle Dunlop
Herald Writer
The Boeing Co. dropped orders for 26 aircraft, valued as much as $5.8 billion, from its order tally Thursday.

Boeing reduced its backlog by 15 787 Dreamliners, 10 777s and one single-aisle 737. With this latest 787 cancellation, Boeing now has more cancellations for its delayed Dreamliner this year than it has new orders. Boeing has received 32 cancellations for its 787 since the beginning of 2010 and just 28 orders.

Chicago-based Boeing is aiming to deliver the first 787 later this year to Japan's All Nippon Airways -- more than two years behind schedule. However, company officials hinted last month that the delivery of the 787 might slide into early 2011.

Although Boeing doesn't comment on order cancellations, it no longer lists an order for 15 787s for Dubai Aerospace Enterprise.

Boeing and the carrier had confirmed the Dreamliner order in late 2007 when the United Arab Emirates-based leasing company made a splash by placing a $29 billion aircraft order split between Boeing and Airbus. Industry observers have been skeptical of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise's ability to keep those orders due to the leasing company's financial woes.

Boeing added orders for two 737s -- one for a business jet and the other from an undisclosed customer. The new orders and cancellations bring Boeing's year-to-date net order total to 255. The company has received 319 gross orders and 64 total cancellations.

Also Thursday, Boeing reported that it had delivered 41 aircraft in July, including 10 Everett-built 777s. Through the end of July, Boeing has delivered 263 aircraft; 211 of those deliveries were of Boeing's popular Renton-built 737.

Boeing's shares dropped 54 cents Thursday to close at $68.71.

Afresh delays in 787 scheme - Boeing faces claim on 787 delays from Air India

Quote:
Boeing insiders indicated the company has decided to push back the first flight of the sixth and final 787 flight test aircraft to Sept. 12, while on another front the manufacturer is facing a $1 billion claim from Air India related to 27 delayed Dreamliners the carrier has on order.
The latest challenges to hit the 787 program come as Boeing continues to target the 2010 fourth quarter for first delivery to ANA even as it warns that first deliveries could slip into 2011 (ATW Daily News, July 29). While final assembly has started on the 26th 787 designated for Air India, the airline reportedly has submitted a $1 billion claim against Boeing for compensation for delivery delays. According to India Today, it has the backing of the Indian government in seeking compensation from Boeing, although the US government is pressuring it to soften its line.

Initial 787 deliveries to Air India were due to start in 2008 but the first aircraft is now scheduled to be delivered in March 2011. The airline is planning to use 787s to replace aging aircraft including A310s and 747-400s.

Boeing has acknowledged that the margin on the 787 flight test program has thinned considerably. Its plan to put the sixth flight test aircraft in the air by the end of July did not come to fruition. According to company insiders, ZA006's first flight is now targeted for Sept. 12.

The first five flight test aircraft have completed 463 flights spanning 1,446 hr. The high-time aircraft is ZA001 with 159 flights and 466.7 hr.

Boeing incorporating change to cut drag in 787 tail

While Boeing inspects 787-8 Dreamliner horizontal stabilizers for manufacturing flaws, the company also is looking at an innovation on the stabilizers to cut drag on its stretch 787-9, Aviation Week's Guy Norris reported Thursday.

Hybrid laminar flow control involves sucking boundary layer air through tiny holes in the skin of the leading edges of the vertical and horizontal tails, helping to delay the transition of the air from smooth, laminar flow to turbulent flow, Norris wrote. If it works, he added, Boeing will feed the technology back into the 787-8.

Boeing gets OK to start 787 pilot training courses

NEW YORK — Boeing Co. said Monday it's been given approval by the Federal Aviation Administration to start pilot training courses for its new 787.

The Chicago company called the approval a "significant milestone" as it ramps up to start flight training.

With the 787 pilot training courses, pilots can transition to the new airplane in five to 20 days, depending on experience. Boeing 777 pilots can qualify to fly the 787 in as little as five days, given the high level of similarity between the two airplane types.

The 787, which Boeing calls the Dreamliner, is made of many composite materials designed to make it lighter and more fuel-efficient than comparable planes already in the sky. Its development has been plagued by delays, and the first delivery is now scheduled for late this year to Japan's All Nippon Airways.

The Chicago-based company's most popular plane remains the workhorse 737.

There are currently five Boeing Training & Flight Services locations around the world in Tokyo, Singapore, Shanghai, Seattle and Gatwick, UK.

'Package A' Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 suffers engine failure

In early August, a production standard 'Package A' Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine suffered an engine failure while on the test stand at the company's Derby, UK facility. The 'Package A' engines do not incorporate upgrades planned for the 'Package B' engines, which will bring the specific fuel consumption target within 1% of planned spec.

Quote:
Rolls-Royce says: "We have had an engine failure on a test bed in Derby. We are now investigating in detail and have made good progress in understanding the issue. We do not anticipate any impact on the programme."
Quote:
Industry sources say the failure, which is believed to have been uncontained, occurred in early August on a production 'Package A' model Trent 1000 engine that will power early 787-8 aircraft for launch customer All Nippon Airways, and has been initially traced to the single-stage intermediate pressure (IP) turbine. The IP turbine in conjunction with the IP compressor supplies the electrical power for the 787's systems.
Boeing has yet to comment on the event, but it appears that 787 flight testing will not be impacted. ZA001 through ZA004 are all powered by the 'Package A' Trent 1000s. ZA004 will be outfitted with the 'Package B' engines later in the flight test program.

Uh-oh!

(Reuters) - Boeing Co (BA.N) has pushed back delivery of its first 787 Dreamliner by several weeks due to a delay in the availability of a Rolls-Royce (RR.L) engine which is needed for the final phases of flight testing.

The U.S. planemaker now expects to deliver the carbon-composite plane, already delayed by more than two years, to launch customer Japan's All Nippon Airways (ANA) (9202.T) by the middle of the first quarter of 2011.

Boeing previously said the first delivery would be made a few weeks into 2011.

The delay comes after a Rolls' Trent 1000 engine blew up earlier this month at a test site in Derby, central England, forcing the company to temporarily close the facility.

"The delivery date revision follows an assessment of the availability of an engine needed for the final phases of flight test this fall," Boeing said. "Flight testing across the test fleet continues as planned."

Boeing added it was working with the British engine maker to ensure engines were made available as soon as possible but that the delay would not affect its financial outlook.

A Rolls-Royce spokesman said it was "working closely with Boeing to expedite delivery in support of their program schedule."

Shares in Rolls-Royce were 1.3 percent down at 552 pence by 0820 GMT. Boeing shares closed 0.5 percent higher at $61.33 on Thursday in the United States.

"REGRETTABLE" DELAY

Boeing had initially aimed to deliver the first Dreamliner to All Nippon Airways by the end of 2010, but last month pushed the delivery date back to a few weeks into 2011, citing technical issues.

ANA called the delay "regrettable" and said it was keen to know when Boeing would be able to deliver its second 787.

ANA has ordered 55 of Boeing's latest jetliner, eight of which the planemaker has promised to deliver by April 2011.

Deliveries of the long-range passenger jet to ANA have been delayed by more than two years due to production problems.

The Japanese carrier said it did not include revenue from the 787 in its business plan this year so there would be no change to its profit outlook for the year ending March 31.

The Dreamliner promises greater fuel efficiency and its lightweight materials and innovative design have captured the imagination of the industry.

Yet flight testing has been going more slowly than expected after the twin-engined passenger plane made an inaugural flight last December.

A spokesman for Australia's Qantas Airways (QAN.AX) said it was too early to say what impact the delay would have on it.

Qantas in July brought forward its 787 delivery schedule, saying it would receive the first 50 of the aircraft it has on order in mid-2012. (Additional reporting by Sakthi Prasad in Bangalore; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman, Tim Kelly and Mark Potter)

Chronology: Boeing's troubled 787 Dreamliner

Boeing Co said the first delivery of its long-delayed 787 Dreamliner has been pushed to the middle of the first quarter of 2011 from the fourth quarter of 2010 due to engine availability.

Boeing, the No 2 plane-maker behind EADS unit Airbus, has been struggling with a range of supply, manufacturing and design problems, made worse by a two-month strike at Boeing's Seattle-area plants last year.

The following events show the slow and bumpy progress of the revolutionary, carbon composite aircraft, which is key to Boeing's financial success.

2002 - Boeing drops its Sonic Cruiser concept, responding to airlines' calls for greater fuel efficiency rather than extra speed.

June 2003 - Dubs its new carbon-composite airplane the Dreamliner.

Dec 2003 - Approves an initial version of the plane with the temporary name 7E7, the E standing for "efficiency."

Jan 2005 - Gives plane official designation 787.

July 2006 - Popularity of 787 design forces Airbus to go back to drawing board on its competing A350, relaunching it as the A350 XWB (extra wide body).

Jan 2007 - Boeing CEO Jim McNerney says plane is on target for first test flight around end of August 2007 and first delivery May 2008.

June 2007 - Boeing says first test flight may slip to September 2007, while still on schedule for first delivery in May 2008.

July 25, 2007 - Boeing shares hit all-time high of $107.80, boosted by strong 787 orders. Company says plane is running slightly behind in certain areas but holds to schedule.

Sept 2007 - Boeing puts back first test flight by about three months because of a shortage of bolts and problems with flight control software. Shifts flight target to mid-November to mid-December 2007; keeps May 2008 delivery target.

Oct 2007 - Announces longer delay, due to continued production problems, pushing first test flight to end-March 2008 and putting back first delivery by about six months to late November or December 2008.

Jan 2008 - Boeing announces further three-month delay due to problems with unnamed suppliers and slow assembly progress. Pushes back test flight to end-June 2008 and first delivery to early 2009, making plane about nine months behind original schedule.

April 2008 - Sets first test flight for the fourth quarter of 2008 and first delivery for the third quarter of 2009, about 15 months behind the original schedule.

Sept. 6, 2008 - Boeing's assembly workers go on strike over contract terms, shutting down Boeing's Seattle-area plants. They return to work in early November after 58 days out.

Nov. 4, 2008 - Boeing says first flight delayed by strike, will not happen until 2009.

Dec. 11, 2008 - Says first flight now set for second quarter of 2009 and first delivery in first quarter of 2010, making the plane about two years late.

June 2009 - Boeing reports 59 total cancellations for 787s, with net orders for 866 of the planes.

Aug 27, 2009 - Sets new timetable, with first flight by the end of 2009 and first delivery in fourth quarter of 2010.

Dec. 15, 2009 -- Dreamliner makes first test flight.

Aug. 27, 2010 - Boeing says first 787 delivery will be in the middle of the first quarter of 2011.

I think March, 2011 will be the final deadline. I was walking around the factory the other day, and the ANA planes seem to be progressing along nicely.

ANA, JAL, Air Marroc, and Air India will be the first deliveries.

Looking forward to flying this and the A380.

Btw, aren't those windows supposed to be 50% larger? they don't look like they are or perhaps just the angle of the picture
