WASHINGTON (AFP) – US aerospace giant Boeing has warned some customers its new 787 Dreamliner will face delays of up to 10 months, Aviation Week reported Friday, citing industry sources.
According to people familiar with the situation, Korean Air is the airline hardest hit so far, the industry magazine said on its website.
Korean will get its first 787 in August 2012, 10 months later than previously planned.
Air India now is believed to be scheduled to receive its first 787 in September or October 2011 instead of April, a delay of around five months.
And Japan Airlines will take delivery of its first 787 in June 2011 at the earliest, Aviation Week said. That compares to a previous March delivery date.
