Some interesting changes from the monthly order update:

http://active.boeing.com/commercial/...&pageid=m15527


CIT Leasing Corporation (USA):
conversion of 5 787-8s to the 787-9.

Korean Air:
The order from 2 weeks ago was for a 787-8. They did originally ordered 10 -8s, but that order was converted to the -9. So this might be a special order for a VIP plane, or they have decided to also operate the -8 again. Then we probably will see lease orders for the -8 as well.

Unidentified Customer
The order that was placed last week was placed on 31 October, it was for 2 787-8s.

A top up or RwandAir?


787 total per subtype:

787-8: 496
787-9: 396
787-10: 90
Total: 982


Air Berlin's conversion from the -8 to the -9 is still not booked, that's still outstanding. Just like BA's order for 12 -10s and 6 -9s.

I think RwandAir. Maybe Boeing will announce selling off all early frames during Dubai Air Show. ZA005 has been probably sold too. This will be great PR event as looking at all whining about early frames and withdrawal from delivery of test fleet to original customers.

The LN20 ZA175 JA821J JAL was moved back from the delivery center to the flight line.

This means that delivery #100 is still up for grabs.

Air India should take the 100th b787 DreamLiner because they have the payment for next 12 DreamLiners delivery so they should do it

They won't. Air India took 99th delivery, and VT-ANE won't be ready in time.
But i think deal is done, JA821J is 100th delivered 787. Flight Plan popped up on the flightaware, just delivery flight is postponed for some reason.

Yep, removed. But this happened many times before, and plane flew out 2-3 days later.

And the 100 787 that will fly to it's new home will be:

LN85 ZA434 B-2730 Hainan Airlines
http://flightaware.com/live/flight/C...000Z/KCHS/KORD


Strangely enough it will fly from Charleston to Chicago and not directly to China. Maybe there will be some festivities in the windy city where the Boeing HQ is located. Or will it go directly into commercial service with a flight Chicago - Beijing.

Not unless Hainan wants the plane to sit on the ground at Chicago ORD until the 19th of November when they are schedule to launch 787 service to Beijing from Chicago ORD. It would be cool if they move up the launch date to say Monday.

Been meaning to post this for a while now:


The only reason I'm putting this here is because the 787 is heavily featured.

Very strange. Looks like last minute event, but this is more sensible than delivering LN20 as 100th Dreamliner.

I saw it at the Charleston Delivery Center this morning and they also had some event-type tents set up outside 88-30 on the North Ramp. They probably had a little celebration here and will probably have one in Chicago too.

It turns out that the JAL 787 was delivered after all, the 787 live tracker website from Boeing states that 101 787s were delivered on November 8, 2013.
http://www.newairplane.com/787/dreamliner-live/


But that number is already outdated because today the 102nd delivery took place.

LN124 ZA292 N27908 United Airlines was delivered from Charleston.
http://flightaware.com/live/flight/U...400Z/KCHS/KDEN

It's the 4th this month, with plenty more to come this month that is not even half way done. And with 53 deliveries so far this year the target of more then 60 deliveries in 2013 will be easily be reached, even with all the problems this earlier this year.
