Sources are indicating some slips in 787 deliveries for September but so far it doesn't seem that any of the slips are into October....yet. The first for Qatar Airways, ZA461 (LN 58, A7-BCB) and ZA119 (LN 69, JA814A) bot hare now tentatively scheduled to deliver around September 20th. Additionally Boeing is working some unknown issues with ZA182 (LN 70, JA828J) and delivery may take place around September 5th but may be even later.
The information thus far hasn't indicated any slide of September deliveries into October just as yet but one has to wonder what are the issues that are causing the delivery slide.
Still no word on the deliveries to Air India though there is a rumor that contractual delivery was made on ZA233 (LN 29, VT-AND) and ZA236 (LN 35, VT-ANH) on Aug. 31st. This is yet unconfirmed and we may not know until Boeing releases its monthly orders and deliveries report for August within the next 10 days. The airplanes are being held in Charleston over some unspecified engine issue is resolved. I don't know if it has anything to do with the GEnx engine failure from July or not. I'll keep an eye on it.
