Boeing starts 787 changes to meet certification goal

By Reuters
Posted yesterday at 5:09

Boeing Co. said on Monday it began incorporating required changes to its long-delayed 787 Dreamliner to move the program toward certification this year by aviation authorities.

The work, to be done in San Antonio, Texas, includes installing electronic and mechanical equipment, software upgrades and testing systems.

A Boeing spokesman said the “change incorporation” step is required for all new airplane programs. He said the company expects the plane to be certified this year.

Boeing said it will hire 450 temporary employees to join its staff of 1,700 workers based in San Antonio.

Boeing, the No. 2 commercial plane-maker after Airbus (EAD.PA), is nearly three years behind its original schedule for the lightweight, carbon-composite Dreamliner. The company expects first delivery in the third quarter of this year.

Boeing has taken 843 orders for the Dreamliner, according to its website. That is a record number of orders for a Boeing plane still in development.

Shares of Boeing were down 2.5 percent at $70.03 on the New York Stock Exchange in early afternoon.

Boeing Statement on MOU with Hong Kong Airlines for 38 Airplanes

HONG KONG, Mar. 7, 2011 – The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] is delighted with Hong Kong Airlines’ intention to expand its fleet with the purchase of 38 Boeing airplanes, including six 777 Freighters, 30 787-9s and two 787-8 VIP airplanes.
Boeing's family of technologically advanced, long-haul airplanes will enhance Hong Kong Airlines’ ability to match the demands of the different markets it serves, and connect its long-haul network to local sources of demand.

Boeing is working with Hong Kong Airlines to finalize the agreement, at which time it will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website.

Double-stretched 787 could be next on Boeing's list


Add one more airplane to Boeing's lengthy to-do list.

Boeing is pitching airline customers a third, bigger version of its Dreamliner family that could be delivered in 2016: the 787-10.

"It's such an incredible airplane," senior Boeing executive Nicole Piasecki said. "The feedback from the airlines is very, very positive."

Boeing long has studied a 787-10, which would be the same size as the smallest member of the 777 family.

But as the company lately talked more about enhancing the 777 with a new wing, the possibility of a 787-10 launch seemed to recede.

Yet in an interview this week, Piasecki made clear a revamped 777 is some years out, the last in a long list of planned airplane developments.

She indicated the 787-10 could be first on that list.

The initial 230-seat version of the Dreamliner, the 787-8, should be delivered later this year. The second version, the stretched 270-seater 787-9, is in development and scheduled to enter service in late 2013.

The proposed double-stretch 787-10 sacrifices the long range of the first two models for extra seating and cargo capacity. However, analysts are skeptical the bigger version still will be as efficient.

Piasecki, vice president of business development and strategic integration, said the 787-10, which would seat about 300 passengers, can outperform the initial version of Airbus's latest jet, the A350-900 that's set to debut in 2013.

She cited a range of about 7,900 miles, which is some 1,400 miles short of the range of the Airbus A350-900.

But she said Boeing estimates its lighter plane would be 12 percent cheaper to operate than the Airbus jet.

Airlines "will get incredible economics out of the (787)-10 if they don't need the range," Piasecki said.

Richard Aboulafia, an aviation analyst with Teal Group, is skeptical.

"These are highly theoretical numbers" based on assumptions about the plane's weight and aerodynamic characteristics, he said. "Everyone is eager to get a plane with these characteristics. Who wouldn't be? But it's a purely theoretical construct."

Aboulafia said the 787-10 economics Piasecki touted will depend heavily on engine makers delivering more powerful, yet efficient engines.

Another uncertainty is whether Boeing and its supplier partners can adjust their manufacturing systems and produce the plane on schedule.

The Dreamliner's global supply chain repeatedly ground to a halt in the past few years. Although it is now delivering better quality 787-8 sections to the final assembly site in Everett, it has yet to ramp up to a faster pace.

Boeing will "look at the reality of how the production system would handle it," Piasecki said. "There's lots of things we'd have to work on before we determine the timing."

Piasecki insisted the overlap with the 777 family is not an issue.

The 787-10 would be the same size as a 777-200ER. But the 777 has a much longer range, and she anticipates that plane would still sell to airlines that need to fly 8,900 miles.

The much larger 365-seat 777-300ER, Boeing's best-selling large airplane, is well-positioned in the market and won't be threatened by an Airbus rival until after 2015.

And if Airbus then produces, as expected, a version of the A350 that would be competitive with the 777-300ER, that's the airplane Boeing would revamp, likely with a new wing.

If the 787-10 moves from theory to reality, it will add to Boeing's already full plate.

Piasecki and Boeing Vice President Mike Bair talked of the possible launch of an all-new smaller jet family to replace the 737 and 757 single-aisle airplanes, to enter service around the end of this decade.

But if the 787-10 goes ahead, it would come first, she indicated.

Put it another way: Boeing may squeeze in the 787-10 after it finishes the 787-9, developing it concurrently with the 767 Air Force tanker.

The company would deliver the double-stretch 787-10 before the 737/757 replacement jet family, and follow that with the 777 enhancement with a new wing. All these projects are to be complete by around the end of this decade.

That's "a desirable, but theoretical, and extremely ambitious road map," Aboulafia said. "You have to wonder where the cash is going to come from."

Piasecki said the resources needed for a derivative airplane would not be so great, and Boeing would need only part of its Dreamliner design team to develop the 787-10.

Korean Air: To Start Receiving B787-9s From Boeing From 2016

http://www.nasdaq.com/aspx/stock-mar...eing-from-2016

SEOUL -(Dow Jones)- Korean Air Lines Co. (003490.SE) on Friday said it has revised its order for Boeing Co's (BA) 787 Dreamliner aircraft and that it would start receiving the new planes from 2016.

Korean Air revised the contract so that it would receive 10 B787-9s as opposed to 10 B787-8s as originally agreed upon in 2005, the company said in a regulatory filing. The airline was supposed to start receiving the Dreamliners this year.

The disclosure comes after Boeing said last week that it the Korean airline may not be able to get its first Dreamliner this year. The firm said at the time that no decision has been made about the delivery schedule for Korean Air.

Separately, the airline said it has placed a $640 million order to acquire two B747-8F aircraft, which are for shipping cargo.

Fiji airline Air Pacific cancels orders for 8 Boeing 787s worth $1.5 billion
14 April 2011

SEATTLE (AP) - Boeing says that Fiji airline Air Pacific has canceled orders for eight 787s, a jetliner whose debut has been delayed by about three years.

Boeing Commercial Airplanes spokesman Miles Kotay in Seattle says the order was valued at $1.5 billion. He says Boeing and Air Pacific continue to talk about replacing its wide body fleet. He says the airline's evolving business model has affected its fleet requirement.

Air Pacific ordered five of the 787s in 2006 and added three more in 2007.

The new mid-size long-range jetliner is currently in flight testing.

Kotay said Wednesday in an email the total number of 787 cancellations is 140 airplanes. At one time, Boeing says on its website that it had about 835 orders for the new model.

So sad to see this scheme dropped in favour of the back to the 1980s scheme!

China Southern orders six more Dreamliners
Originally published on asia.businesstraveller.com 10/05/2011 - Filed under: News »

China Southern Airlines announced the purchase of six Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft for its subsidiary, Xiamen Airlines. The carrier has already ordered 10 787-8 Dreamliners for itself.

The six new aircraft are scheduled to land in China between 2014 and 2015. However, delays are possible, given that Boeing has put back delivery of the aircraft to launch customer ANA several times.

The latest announcement from Boeing is for the third quarter of this year, citing a series of technical issues, including a fire onboard a test flight (see story here) as cause for the hold up. With pilot training sessions finally underway, it seems that arrival of the long-awaited Dreamliner will no longer remain in the realm of fantasy (see story here).

Boeing slams labor board over complaint
By SAM HANANEL, Associated Press
Wed May 4, 8:56 pm ET

WASHINGTON – Boeing Co. is accusing federal labor regulators of unfairly twisting or misquoting statements by company executives to make a case that the company illegally retaliated against union workers.

In a letter, the company urges the National Labor Relations Board to withdraw a complaint "based upon these misstatements" that accuses Boeing of locating a new plant in South Carolina in part to avoid future labor disruptions in Washington state.

"You have a responsibility to correct these misquotations and mischaracterizations, for the public record and also for purposes of the complaint you have filed," Boeing general counsel Michael Luttig wrote. "Through these misquotations and mischaracterizations, you have done a grave disservice to The Boeing Company, its executives and shareholders, and to the 160,000 Boeing employees worldwide."

The complaint, filed last month, alleges that Boeing located a new assembly line for the 787 aircraft in South Carolina — a right-to-work state — to retaliate against union workers in Washington state who went on strike in 2008. The NLRB is seeking a court order that would force Boeing to return all 787 assembly work to Washington, even though the company has already built a new South Carolina plant and hired 1,000 new workers there.

Boeing filed a formal response on Wednesday that said that stopping 787 work in South Carolina would be impermissibly punitive because it would effectively shut it down. It would also be a radical departure from legal precedent, the company said.

Boeing has taken issue with the labor board's claim that the company removed or transferred any work from its Washington state facility in Puget Sound, where the aircraft is assembled by members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. The Chicago-based company says all the work in South Carolina will be new work and that no union member has lost a job over the action.

Luttig's letter also disputes assertions that statements by Boeing executives show the company wanted to "punish" union workers for past strikes.

"These statements show, at most, that the company considered (among multiple other factors) the risk and potential costs of future strikes in deciding where to locate its new final assembly facility," Luttig said. Its formal response to the labor board said that even if its intent in opening the South Carolina plant were to avoid the economic impact of a potential strike, that would not be tantamount to retaliating against the union for prior strikes.

NLRB spokeswoman Nancy Cleeland said a hearing set for June 14 in Seattle is the appropriate venue to address the merits of the complaint.

"The complaint indicates that an investigation of charges brought by the Machinists' union found sufficient evidence to present the allegations to an administrative law judge," Cleeland said.

787 Dreamliner will come to Warsaw
Source: LOT
07/06/2011

The world’s most innovative aircraft, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which will be delivered next year to the LOT Polish Airlines, will visit Warsaw on 24th of June.

The aircraft will fly to Poland. After its landing in Warsaw, 787 Dreamliner will be towed from the runway to the hangars into the area of LOT AMS. The date of this event is related to the fact that the aircraft will fly directly from the Le Bourget air show, during which the Dreamliner will be presented in accordance with the timetable prepared by The Boeing Company.

The presentation of Dreamliner in Warsaw is an unforgettable event both for our company and for the entire Polish aviation industry. The airport in Warsaw is the first passengers’ airport in Europe, where it will be possible to see this airplane “from our dreams” after its presentation at Le Bourget. An even more beautiful sight for us will be to see the 787 Dreamliner in the colors of LOT next year – says Marcin Piróg, the CEO of LOT. We are proud that we can show this modern aircraft to our guests, media and staff. We are looking forward for the next year when our Passenger will be able to experience the uniqueness and the new quality of service of the 787 Dreamliner – adds Marcin Piróg.

The Dreamliner is the most innovative long-haul passenger plane, and the only one until now whose structure is produced primarily from composite materials. The newest product of The Boeing Company consumes less fuel than other airplanes, which results in the reduction of the environmental pollution. The aircraft also has the noise reduction system in the passenger cabin, and offers improved passenger comfort with bigger windows and bins, lower cabin altitude, increased humidity and cleaner air. What is important is the fact that the journey in the Dreamliner on a particular long-haul route will take less time than if this journey was made onboard another type of airplane in the Dreamliner’s segment, thanks to the airplane’s fast cruise speed.

LOT will be the first carrier in Europe to receive the Dreamliner. LOT expects the delivery of the first Dreamliner in the second quarter of 2012. The next four planes are to be delivered to LOT until the end of the next year.

In total, the fleet of the Polish carrier will grow by eight 787 Dreamliners.

So does the wing's shape somehow mean that it does not need the typical winglets and still be just as efficient?
