BOSTON, Apr 08, 2008 (Thomson Financial via COMTEX) -- BA | news | PowerRating | PR Charts -- Boeing Co. will update the status of its 787 Dreamliner aircraft program on Wednesday, with at least some Wall Street analysts expecting the Chicago-based jetliner manufacturer to report further delays.

American Technology Research maintained a sell rating on Boeing shares as the firm expects a new three-to-six-month delay in the 787 program.

"Expect Boeing to positively spin the delay saying it will provide a greater window on the flight test program, which could lessen the unknown 'unknowns'," American Tech said. "While we agree the delays will help in terms of additional simulation testing, successfully flying the six text aircraft is what investors want to see."



the market are not impressed with booing - first after the crying over the tanker deal - and the 7-late-7 - all the PR in the world still doesn`t mean a flying aircraft - that and the 747-8 has 2 years worth of orders and thats it.

LONDON (Thomson Financial) - U.S. aircraft manufacturer Boeing Co is expected to announce Wednesday that its 787 Dreamliner is facing an 18-month delay, the Times reported.



The markets allready know - it`ll be 2010 before the 787 is in service - booing have really dropped the ball this time around , and as i reported earlier - they are now in a position of having to scrap the 787-3 in a vague attempt to keep the project on track

Talk about karma.

After the obvious campaign against Airbus & the A350 & A380 delays we now see it's the inevitable turn of the 787 (7 - late - 7, very amusing).

As some of us said last year (and further back) at the time, when you're pushing the boundaries delays and cost over-runs are inevitable.

Sadly some preferred to wave the wangs about in a ridiculous display of chauvinistic foolery.

They are mightily conspicuous by their absence right now.

I suppose Boeing made the most of it but now the boot is going to be on the other foot.
It'll be interesting to see how their customers now hold them over a barrel.

The entire problem is now that its encroaching onto the launch window of the A350 XWB; i think the entire concept of `global suppliers` in thi case is wrong , with so much of the aircraft being made in other countries - 1 slip and the entire time line goes down teh pan - which is what we have now


it cannot be said that the new boeings are truely `made in america` - ffs the new 747 is designed in russia!

None of the 787s problems stem from new technology included in the aircraft.
