There was a lot going on today with the 787 program. First, Qatar first 787, ZA461 (LN 58, A7-BCB) made an appearance on the flightline fully painted. Matt Cawby got a very nice picture of it. This aircraft was parked in stall 107 which had been occupied by ZA236 (LN 35, VT-ANH) for Air India. This air frame was moved to the Fuel Dock until spot opens up when one of the ANA 787s fly away in the next two days. Speaking of ANA 787s, they're been newsworthy. First it was revealed to Reuters that the dimmable windows are not dark enough. Why they're raising this question now instead of when PPG was developing them for the 787 is not known. Apparently the shades are letting in enough light so that the customers can't sleep. I don't know if there is a remedy to ANA's concerns but the aircraft nonetheless is performing extremely well in passenger service. Japan Airlines has not complained about the windows and they're flying the aircraft on several long haul routes. However the issue will not slow down deliveries of the aircraft to ANA. Today ZA508 (LN 51, JA811A) took its B-1 flight in preparation to being delivered. I expect that this airplane should deliver next month. Finally it is still expected that ANA will take delivery of ZA506 (LN 47, JA809A) today though I am awaiting confirmation of this.
