Frames are ready to go, so it's customers' turn to make payments and fly away.

Woodys Aeroimages, that frame which you signed "N804AN American Airlines Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner - cn 40622 / ln 288" is not by the way LN283 ET-ASH for Ethiopian or LN285 CN-RGC for RAM? White rudder and no WiFi bump suggest that it isn't American's 787.
Yeah - I thought it was wrong - Both ET-ASH LN 283 as well as RAM's 787 look so similar with white rudder's. We will assume it's ET-ASH and see what comes out of paint in a week. HAve a 50/50 shot of being right.

After Air Austral another overseas French airline has opted for the 787.


Air Tahiti Nui, the flag carrier of French Polynesia has chosen the 787-9 to replace their A340s. 2 will be leased and 2 will be ordered directly from Boeing. The 1st deliveries will take place in 2018.

Boeing delivered 4 787s today. Flyaways scheduled for tomorrow:
LN249 ZA818 N801AC 2nd for American
LN261 ZA478 A7-BCS 19th for Qatar
LN266 ZA479 A7-BCT 20th for Qatar
LN271 ZA199 JA840J 20th for JAL

Etihad's 2nd 789 should be delivered tomorrow and flyaway later. Hainan's B-2750 who knows? It's ready, but delays with Chinese carriers aren't anything new.
--------

LN60 ZA239 VT-ANK is back to service: http://www.flightradar24.com/reg/vt-ank
That leaves only VT-AND on the ground.

I'm wondering how these 'options' work. Is it common that the plane maker allocate delivery slots to options, like in this case ? I find it really strange that Boeing still (yes still because the first reserved slot seems to be not so far, only in 2 years from now) keeps those slots for unfirmed orders considering the very scarce delivery slots of the 787.

Quote:
Qantas inches closer to Boeing 787 order

Qantas is sounding increasing confident on adding the Boeing 787 to its fleet on the back of the airline's return to profitablity, with initial discussions already underway which could see the first red-tailed Dreamliner flying within two years.
Having chalked up a $367 million dollar pre-tax profit over the July-December 2014 period, in a solid rebound from the previous year's $252 million loss, talk of making good on Qantas' oft-delayed Dreamliner order is back on the table.
Qantas has its dance card punched for 50 of Boeing's next-gen jets but the order has been contingent on a turnaround for the Flying Kangaroo's international arm, which would fly the Dreamliners on current routes and open up new destinations.
With Qantas International now back in the black – the overseas operation soared from a $262 million loss in the second half of 2013 to a pre-tax profit of $59 million in July-December 2014, representing a $321 million turnaround – that box has now been ticked.
Joyce seeks 'robust business case'

Now Qantas is moving on to the second element of the Dreamliner deal: making sure all the numbers add up.
There's no doubt that the fuel-efficient Boeing 787 will play its part in cutting Qantas' massive fuel bill, which is expected to come in at $4 billion this financial year – a figure which already includes an estimated $480 million savings from lower jet fuel prices.
Airlines already flying the Dreamliner are reporting fuel savings of around 20% compared to an equivalent jet, while Boeing is also spruiking a longer period between major maintenance checks.
New Dreamliner needs different deal for crew

Cutting a contract with would-be Boeing 787's crew, especially the flight deck officers, is another key element on the Qantas' pre-flight checklist for the Boeing 787.
“We are talking to our employees about getting that aircraft business case to work for us going forward," says Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce, who described those discussions as a "good dialogue."
A strong card to play in discussions on conditions for crew working on the Boeing 787s will be the high appeal of being qualified on the Boeing 787, which is already flown by 29 airlines with almost 20 more still standing in the queue.
“We all want them in the fleet" says Joyce of the Boeing 787, which has been on Qantas’ roadmap since December 2005 when then-CEO Geoff Dixon inked a deal for as many as 115 of the jets to be delivered from 2008.
Red-tailed Boeing 787s by 2017?

Of course, the Dreamliner didn’t make its commercial debut until October 2011, while Qantas’ own commitment has been pared back and pushed back over the many years since, and now stands at first deliveries from 2017.
Qantas has also signalled that there's plenty of time to hammer out those agreements, with CFO Gareth Evans – who next week becomes CEO of Qantas International – saying that Qantas' spread on the 50 options and purchase rights plus its good relationship with Boeing gave the airline plenty of room to move.
“There is no pressure on us in terms of timing... there’s pretty much complete flexibility in terms of what we take and when."

Qantas already made the prepayments for those delivery slots, it's not like Boeing giving them a free favor. And with the huge back-log it's also not an issue, even if Qantas would not firm up they would still fill those slots in no time.

Boeing already did the same with the American Airlines and Xiamen Airlines orders. It's common business practice. And there have already been enough cancellations to say that a firm order is also not a guarantee for a actual delivery.

No changes at EMC or to any other frames on the flight line from what I can see.

Boeing confirms Air Tahiti Nui's Commitment for 2 787-9s.


Quote:
Boeing Statement on Air Tahiti Nui Commitment for Two 787-9 Dreamliners

SEATTLE, Feb. 27, 2015 – Boeing (NYSE: BA) is pleased that Air Tahiti Nui has announced a commitment to purchase two 787-9 Dreamliners. The order, valued at $514 million at current list prices, will be posted on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website when finalized.

“Boeing is honored to start this new partnership with Air Tahiti Nui,” said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The 787-9 will provide Air Tahiti Nui with superior performance, range capabilities and economics, while its passengers will enjoy the Dreamliner’s unique features such as higher humidity, lower cabin altitude and the largest windows of any current commercial airplane, providing a commanding view of the horizon above beautiful Tahiti throughout the airplane.”

Air Tahiti Nui, the flag-carrier for French Polynesia, has headquarters in Papeete and operates from Faa'a International Airport on the island of Tahiti.

I'm actually kind of surprised that Air Tahiti Nui (TN) decided to buy the 787-9 instead of the A330-800neo. Mind you, I think this airline could get earlier deliveries, since it's going to be quite some time before the A330-800neo is flying even in prototype form.

The 1st delivery of the 787-9 is tentatively for 2018. By then the A330neo will be available even if there are some delays which make the EIS slip from Q4 2017 to early 2018. And the availability is probably better then the 787-9, which is also sold out beyond 2018, with just some slots left from leasing companies.

The head of the airline has said that both Airbus and Boeing had offered very good deals that were so close to each other that it turned out that it was a matter of simply choosing the one or the other. What might have pushed the decision towards Boeing is that they offered to pay for all the transition costs of the change from the A340 to the 787, training the pilots and crew, etc.
