Boeing Mulls Boosting 787 Production In 2008, 2009
13 June 2005

PARIS (Dow Jones)--Boeing Co. is considering boosting the number of 787 airplanes it will make in the first two years of production in order to meet demand.

Mike Bair, Boeing's head of the 787 program, said in a briefing at the Paris Air Show Monday that he's looking at ways to hit target production levels more quickly in 2008 and 2009. Currently, Boeing plans to make 95 787s in those two years. [ 13-06-05 1244GMT ]

Bair said he's only considering accelerating the pace of ramping up production at this point, not the target production level. He declined to say what that target level might be, or how many more 787s the company might produce in 2008 and 2009 by accelerating the ramp-up.

"The marketplace would eat as many as we could produce," he said. "At this point it is: What is a prudent ramp-up speed?"

Bair said it's possible that some airlines will be deterred from ordering 787s now if they cannot get any for years, but other airlines are eager to get production slots. "At a certain point, you say: If I can't get a plane until 2014, then I'll wait," he said.

Bair added that hastening the ramp-up involves accelerating production by all of Boeing's suppliers.

^ By that time all Boeing'll have are the 737, 777 and 787 production lines. It's entirely feasable to ramp up production for 787s since the demand is so high for it right now!

Boeing Discusses Progress On 787 Dreamliner
Bernama
June 14, 2005


KUALA LUMPUR
-- Boeing during a briefing at the Paris Air Show reported strong progress on many aspects of the all-new 787 Dreamliner that make the airplane more appealing to passengers and airlines.

Boeing's 787 Vice President and General Manager, Mike Bair highlighted the airplane's new air purification system, which will provide cleaner air during flights, as one advance passengers will truly appreciate.

Passengers will notice a difference," Bair said.

"They will feel more refreshed after their 787 flights. It may be difficult for passengers to recognize the differences between today's airplanes, but the 787 will be distinct.

From its larger windows to its unique interior architecture, and from its lower cabin altitude to its cleaner air, passengers will enjoy their flights on a 787."

During the briefing, Bair also provided an update on the progress being made in the design and development of the new airplane.

"We have built four developments composite barrel sections at this point and are entirely convinced that we have our manufacturing solutions in place," Bair said.

Most recently the team in Wichita built a nose section as part of the development effort.

In Everett, the 787 team is building part of a full-scale wing box to demonstrate the manufacturing techniques and support certification of the new airplane.

"It is a true testament to the team that we have created and proven these techniques in so short a period of time and with truly outstanding results," Bair said.

He credited the innovative and integrated Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) toolset developed by Paris-based Dassault Systemes with providing a real competitive advantage.

"Our international team is better equipped to develop solutions, consider alternatives and make decisions thanks to our digital toolset," Bair said.

"Even now, one year before we start building our first airplane and two years before it flies, we know that our designs are optimised and achievable."

Although the 787 has significantly more advances compared to previous airplanes, the team has reduced the development cycle by one year thanks in large part to the digital toolset.

He added that the market response to the 787 is "validation" that the team is getting it right.

"We have the right airplane at the right time," Bair said.

"Its fuel efficiency, range, cargo capability and improved maintenance make it very attractive to airlines. The number of customers and their diversity in terms of geography and business models highlight the 787's ability to meet the different needs of different airlines."

"The team is humbled and motivated by the market response. We are working diligently to meet the expectations of our customers. They have put their trust in us and we will perform," he added.

Boeing, Vietnam Airlines Complete Boeing 787 Dreamliner Purchase Agreement

La Société
June 22, 2005


WASHINGTON, D.C.
-- The Boeing Company and Vietnam Airlines today signed the firm agreement for the purchase of four Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners by the national airline of Socialist Republic of Vietnam. The signing ceremony, held at the Department of Commerce, included Vietnam Airlines President and CEO Nguyen Xuan Hien and Alan Mulally, president and CEO, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

The event was witnessed by Vietnam Prime Minister Phan Van Khai and U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez.

Vietnam Airlines plans for the 787 to be its future mid-sized, twin-aisle jetliner. The new airplanes, which are valued at $500 million at list prices, are scheduled for delivery in 2009 and 2010. The agreement also includes purchase rights for 11 additional airplanes in the 2010 - 2013 time frame.

Vietnam Airlines became the eighth announced customer and a member of the launch team for the 787 in December 2004. Customer announced orders and commitments for the 787 now total 252 airplanes, including 128 under firm contract.

"This is another great step as Boeing and Vietnam Airlines continue to build our strong, long-term working together relationship," said Mulally. "The competitive advantages of the 787 Dreamliner will help Vietnam Airlines continue its incredible growth and the development of its global route structure."

Vietnam Airlines plans to use the 787-8 to expand its route system and to replace some existing airplanes. The airline has not made an engine selection.

"We are looking forward to operating the 787 Dreamliner," said Nguyen. "The superior efficiency of the 787 will allow Vietnam Airlines to further develop our route structure to include city pairs that would otherwise not be financially viable, while providing the best comfort to our passengers."

Boeing jetliners comprise Vietnam Airlines' entire long-range fleet. The carrier operates seven 777-200ERs and three 767-300ERs. Four of the 777s have been purchased directly from Boeing; the remaining 777s and the 767s are leased.

Vietnam Airlines has a significant international route system, connecting Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to major world cities including Moscow, Paris, Beijing, Sydney and Melbourne, Seoul, Osaka, Tokyo, Taipei, Manila and many others.

The 787-8 Dreamliner will carry around 223 passengers in a tri-class configuration on routes of 8,500 nautical miles (15,700 kilometers). The airplane will use 20 percent less fuel for comparable missions than any similarly sized airplane and will also travel at speeds similar to today's fastest wide bodies, Mach 0.85.

General Electric and Rolls-Royce are developing the engines for the new airplane, which will feature a standardized engine interface, allowing either manufacturer's engines to be installed at any time on the airplane. The new engines are expected to contribute as much as eight percent of the increased efficiency of the new airplane.

First 787-10X Image

Emirates is putting pressure on Boeing to build the '787-10X' double stretch as a replacement for its 777-200ERs. Click on the link to see the first image of the 787-10X, in Emirates colours, done by Flight International.

Do you think the 787-10X will kill off the 777-200ER for good? Does this mean the end of the Emirates order for A350s?

Emirates pushes Boeing on 787-10X

Emirates is stepping up pressure on Boeing to firm up plans to build a larger, 300-seat derivative of the 787 to replace the 777-200ER.

The Dubai-based carrier has been evaluating the 787 along with the A350 with a view to placing a large order, but has repeatedly stated that the current Boeing offering is too small for its needs. The manufacturer has until recently baulked at requests to create a larger 787 derivative, beyond the 260-seat -9, because it would compete with its own 300-seat 777-200ER.

However, as a result of pressure from Emirates and others, as well as the emergence of the 300-seat Airbus A350-900, Boeing is known to be studying a further stretch, designated the “787-10X”, which would seat at least 290 passengers and, at 68m (223ft), be around 6m longer than the 787-9 (Flight International, 20-26 September).

“We’ve told Boeing what Emirates would like, to see what they could do with a 787 stretch and they’ve responded positively,” says airline president Tim Clark. “Now they’ve brought something of interest to us…I don’t know where that will take us,” he says, adding: “They’re working with us and, I dare say, a lot of the others.”



Emirates has nine 777-200/200ERs in service, but Clark believes that the arrival of the A350-900 in 2010 will spell the end for the variant: “They will eat [the 777-200ER] with that aircraft,” he says, adding that he expects the emergence of the new generation twinjets will force Boeing to eventually “cancel” the 777-200ER.

Despite his pessimism about the 777-200ER, Clark says that Emirates is “seriously looking at” the ultra-long-range General Electric GE90-powered -200LR version, which has “unbeatable range and performance”. This aircraft and the incumbent A340-500 are being evaluated as the airline looks to expand its ultra-long-range fleet.

Boeing says: “We are studying larger versions of the 787, but no decisions have been made. We are working with the market to determine the best family solution.”

Boeing Talking About Bigger 787 Jetliner

AP - Boeing Co. is talking with airlines about a stretch version of its new, fuel-efficient 787 jetliner.

Yvonne Leach, Boeing's spokeswoman for the 787 program, said Tuesday the company is talking with Emirates Airlines, Qantas Airways Ltd. and other airlines about the larger jet. She would not identify any of the other airlines or say how many had expressed interest.

Boeing has been reluctant to commit to a bigger 787 because it would steal sales from an extended-range version of its popular 777. But industry analysts say it's smart for Boeing to offer a larger 787, since rival Airbus SAS' planned A350-900 is being designed to compete with both the 787-9 and the 777-200ER.

"The only thing worse than cannibalizing your own market is having your competitor do it," said Richard Aboulafia, an analyst with Teal Group based in Fairfax, Va.

The largest plane in the new 787 family _ the 787-9 _ will carry 250 to 290 passengers more than 10,000 miles when it enters service in 2010, two years after airlines begin flying the smaller, slightly shorter-range 787-8.

If Boeing goes ahead with a 787-10, as company insiders and industry experts have dubbed it, Leach said it would be comparable in passenger capacity and range to the 777-200ER, which can carry about 300 passengers roughly 8,900 miles.

Emirates Airlines, a growing carrier in the United Arab Emirates, ordered 42 777s in November, but is pressuring Boeing for a bigger 787. Qantas Airways Ltd. of Australia ordered 45 787s last week, plus options and purchase rights for more, and has said it would be interested in a larger 787 if Boeing built it.

Because talks remain preliminary, Boeing has not indicated when it will decide whether to offer the 787-10. On Tuesday, Leach said 2012 would be the earliest the plane could enter airline service.

Chicago-based Boeing has said its twin-engine 787s will be more fuel-efficient than any plane flying today, in part because they'll be made largely from composite materials, which are lighter and more durable than aluminum.

To date, Boeing has 241 firm orders for the 787. Besides the 787-8 and 787-9, the company plans the 787-3, which will carry 290 to 330 passengers about 4,000 miles. It's scheduled to enter service in 2009.

The company's talks about airlines' demand for a bigger 787 was reported Tuesday by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
