Royal Air Maroc confirms 787 schedule, may exercise one option

[IMG]http://i45.************/2irkavc.jpg[/IMG]

Royal Air Maroc (AT) will receive its first Boeing 787 in December 2014 and is likely to firm up an option. AT has five 787s on order, plus one option (ATW Daily News, Aug. 11, 2005).

An AT spokesman said the second aircraft will be delivered in March 2015. “The third and the fourth will be delivered between March and April 2016,” the spokesman said. “The fifth, which is on option, is expected in May 2017.”

L'avion star de Boeing 787 Dreamliner a atterri lundi à l'aéroport international Mohammed V de Casablanca dans le cadre d'une tournée mondiale Boeing pour l'exposition de cet appareil prototype de nouvelle génération du constructeur aéronautique américain.
A cette occasion, une tournée et cérémonie d'accueil ont été organisées en présence notamment du ministre de l'Équipement et des Transports, Aziz Rebbah, du PDG de Royal Air Maroc, Driss Benhima, et des représentants de la presse qui ont pu visiter et découvrir pour la première fois cet avion long-courrier. Des explications ont été données par les dirigeants de Boeing et de la RAM sur les atouts et spécificités du Dreamliner qui est capable de transporter entre 210 et 330 passagers sur de longues distances avec des économies en carburant de 20 % et de 30 % de coûts de maintenance par rapport à ces concurrents.

Would anyone know what was the problem on that UA 787 (N26902) that was diverted to MSY? Original route was IAH-EWR...

That was a failure of 1 of the 6 power generators. It could have easily flown to to it's destination with 5 power generators but only because it's a new plane for United they are very cautious and diverted.

The media is all over it and turns the last 2 issues into something too big, here's a better analysis of the situation:

Teething Pains for the Boeing 787


What's actually far more worrying for Boeing is that the conflict with the Unions in Everett is now heading towards a strike.

Union: ‘Very high chance’ of Boeing strike in February

SPEEA, the union is actually talking about a 60 days strike, that's months without production and deliveries on the Everett build 747s, 767s, 787s and most importantly the 777s. For the 787 is could mean that the projected production rate increases won't be realized in 2013 and that the 1st assembly of the 787-9 will be delayed.

There's still 1.5 month to negotiate, and a federal Mediator is trying to get the 2 parties closer together so there's still a big chance of a last minute agreement. Both parties play it hard, but a strike is not good neither Boeing or the workers.

Btw, the production in Charleston should continue since that factory is not unionised.

Qatar Dreamliner Grounded on Fault Echoing United Jet’s

Qatar Airways Ltd. said a 787 jet received from Boeing Co. (BA) this week has been grounded with a faulty generator, a problem similar to one that forced the emergency landing of a Dreamliner operated by United Continental Holdings Inc. (UAL)

Qatar Air’s third 787 exhibited the failure on its delivery flight from the U.S., Akbar Al Baker, the Gulf carrier’s chief executive officer, said today at London’s Heathrow airport. The plane has been grounded since Dec. 9 and may remain so for at least four days while Boeing sends spares and a recovery team.

“These problems are unacceptable because this aircraft has been flying for the last 14 months,” Al Baker said in an interview, referring to the Dreamliner, which entered commercial service late last year. “They have to get their act together very fast because we at Qatar Airways will not accept any more defects.”

Still no. First 767 will be retired in January, when LOT will start flights to Chicago with 787. Next ones with next destinations. All 767 will be retired in March 2013.
