LAN published pictures of their 1st fully painted 787 on their facebook.
http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...2099386&type=3






press release:


Quote:
First LAN Boeing 787 Completes Final Assembly and Exits Factory With Full Livery

The first LAN Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner (which the Company will receive before the end of the year), exited the paint shop of the Boeing factory in Everett, Washington with full livery completing the last phase in the assembly process.

LAN Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner

LAN will be the first airline in Latin America, and one of the first in the world, to receive this aircraft, with the first delivery expected in late 2012 and delivery of 32 total aircraft over the next 10 years. This represents an investment of U.S. $3.5 billion and marks one of the largest investments in the Company’s history. The configuration of the cabin on the first LAN 787-8 aircraft will include 217 Economy class seats and 30 seats for Premium Business class.

The destinations the LAN 787-8 will service during its first year of operations will be Santiago, Chile, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lima, Peru, Los Angeles, California, Madrid, Spain and Frankfurt, Germany. These routes will be gradually integrated during the aircraft’s first year of service.

The passenger’s experience on LAN’s 787

As part of our dedication to continuing to improve our fleet and our commitment to bettering the quality of life of the people where we live and work and preserving the environment, LAN has incorporated one of the world’s newest and most modern aircraft, the Boeing 787 to our fleet. The Boeing 787 offers:

• An innovative, modern and harmonious design.

• With electronic auto-dimming windows and dynamic lighting to create a better atmosphere. Thus, preparing the passenger for the different stages during the flight (day, night, etc.), and for the time zone to which it is arriving.

• Larger windows: the windows of this aircraft have up to 40% more surface area than current windows, which will allow all passengers (in all rows) more visibility during the flight, giving them a better view.

• Overhead bins with 30% more storage space for carryon luggage.

• The aerodynamics of the Boeing 787 incorporates technology that reduces the impact felt by the passenger due to turbulence. In addition, the pressurization of the cabin to a lower altitude (6,000 feet instead of 8,000) would result in the reduction of headaches or other symptoms a passenger might experience when flying.

• The cabin includes new air humidification techniques, significantly reducing fatigue and dryness associated with long trips.

• The passenger may have a more enjoyable trip thanks to the technology in their engines that make them less noisy from both inside and outside the aircraft.

Some of the environmental benefits of the 787

• An emission of up to 20% less of CO2 than similar aircraft.

• Up to 40% less noise footprint than similar aircraft on takeoff, the period of greatest noise in flight.

• 50% of the structure is a carbon fiber composite material, which makes it a first in the industry, this material being more resistant to fatigue and corrosion. This allows, moreover, that the manufacturing process will produce less non-recyclable waste.

Air India update

Quote:
The only approval still needed before delivery is a vote by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs.

That committee hasn't been able to meet because of other political priorities. The key finance minister recently resigned and the other members are busy campaigning for their respective political parties' candidates in the upcoming presidential election.

No further comments from my side.

Ethiopian Airlines update

The 1st 787 that will be delivered to Ethiopian Airlines has flown to Ft Worth to be painted, so we will soon see the full Ethiopian livery on the 787.

Air India and CCEA are a big joke. A huge embarrassment to the nation.

Yes on both questions.

Air India update

India may clear Dreamliner compensation in 15 days
Quote:
The cabinet is likely to clear in 15 days a compensation package agreed by state-run Air India and Boeing Co (BA.N) over delayed deliveries of Dreamliners by the U.S. planemaker, civil aviation minister Ajit Singh said on Tuesday.
If this time they actually hold to this schedule the approval should be on August 1st. This would mean that the deliveries of 4 787s to Air India could take place in the 1st week of August.


~~~~~~~~~~~
Ethiopian has said that they will take delivery of their 1st 787 in early August.
http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...d.main/5513404


~~~~~~~~~~~
And in the meantime there was a delivery to ANA yesterday, their 11nd 787 and the 12th delivered so far this year.

Would be great to see Air India flying their 787's soon. All this nonsense has to stop.

I'm also glad for Ethiopian getting their first and LAN and Qatar getting theirs real soon.

Talking about LAN, they now have said to Flightglobal that they will take delivery of their 1st one in September.

Article with a small photo series of the plane from the start of the assembly to the finished product.

I just noticed that this is the 787nd post in the 787 thread.

Updates are great. The Air India livery looks great on the 787. Love the Qatar interior as well.

Funny, I have always found Air India capable of making the best looking aircraft really ugly. But everyone has their one thing. Gotta agree on Qatar though, inside and out theirs are looking good, was kind of hoping to see 2-4-2 from Qatar but I guess that will have to be a strictly Japanese affair. I am impressed with United's livery and LAN's for the most part too, but the tail looks kind of tacky, should have gone with less distortion on the star and gotten rid of the red stripe.

ANA Grounds 5 of 11 Dreamliners
(WCARN.com/Australian Aviation)

Quote:
All Nippon Airways has been forced to ground five of its 11 Boeing 787 Dreamliners over an engine defect.

The 787 launch customer said the aircraft were grounded after Boeing discovered an issue with the gearbox of the 787's Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine. ANA said the aircraft were grounded as a precaution but that none had been affected by the issue, which was discovered during Boeing's ground-based endurance testing of the engine.

They were grounded for 1 or 2 days, the faulty part in the engine was changed the day after they where grounded. It also only affected early deliveries, Rolls Royce had already replaced the part in the manufacturing of new engines.

Air India update

The cabinet committee has approved the compensation package.
Quote:
India Ministers Approve 787 Compensation

An Indian ministerial panel has approved an undisclosed compensation package from Boeing for delayed delivery of 787 Dreamliner aircraft for state-run Air India, the country's aviation minister Ajit Singh said on Wednesday.

India's cabinet, Singh added, must now clear the package.
http://news.airwise.com/story/view/1343220858.html
But now it needs to be cleared by the whole cabinet, even if this should be just a formality it's again another step in the Indian bureaucracy that has to be taken.


~~~~~~~
If Air India will take delivery in early August it will mean that there was only 1 delivery this month. The reason for another slow month is that Boeing and ANA are waiting for the RR Trent 1000 Package B standard engines that are taking a bit longer then expected. The RR deliveries so for had Package A engines. And since no GE powered 787s where scheduled to be delivered this month this means that it's again a slow month. If Air India gets it's final approval this week it could take 3 straight away.

Boeing had a 1st half year results investors meeting without any major new news about the 787 other then that the target for a total delivery of 35-42 frames in 2012 is still standing.


~~~~~~~

The 1st fully painted 787 for Ethiopian returned to Everett, here's a small picture in the link.
http://lockerz.com/s/228210449


~~~~~~~
And what better way to end this post with the news of a new order, or an almost order since it's still a commitment for 10 787s for Aeromexico.

Quote:
MEXICO CITY, July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced today a commitment by Aeromexico to purchase up to 100 single- and twin-aisle airplanes – a combination of 737 MAXs and 787 Dreamliners – in an agreement that will fuel the airline's expansion.

The commitment by Mexico’s largest airline includes up to 90 737 MAX 8s and 9s and ten 787s.
