A Federal Bankruptcy judge approved of AMR's revised contracts for aircraft purchases today. This now clears the way for the airline to finalize the 787 contract with Boeing. The revised contract now pushes deliveries of the first 787s to November of 2014 and splits to order of 42 aircraft roughly in half: 20 787-8 and 22 787-9. AMR also has 58 options on the 787 but there is no word on when those options expire.
In other news, the JTSB is now saying that the lithium-ion battery on the ANA 787 was not overcharged and had, in fact, seen its voltage drop to almost zero according to the flight data recorders. This is similar to the JAL 787 incident except there wasn't a fire. The JTSB is now going to be looking at other components that may have contributed to the incident similar to what the NTSB is doing.
