Boeing delivers 75th 787 to Air India

According to Matt Cawby, a local Everett photographer, ZA242 (LN 90, VT-ANN) is at the Everett Delivery Center.  This indicates that this particular aircraft has been delivered by Boeing.  I expect that the aircraft will fly away to India later tonight or tomorrow.  Boeing has now delivered 75 787s since deliveries began almost 2 years ago. This delivery is Air India's 8th 787 and should allow them to start the planned Australia routes.

Sounds like Air India had a good week at the office with Steve Correl. Boeing was ready to deliver this unit for Air India's obligatory 30 days and now timeliness is Air India's new montra. :)

If only the Chinese airlines would pick up there pace boeing would be in business. I really still think boeing should just sell them to other airlines untill they are ready for there planes.

News today that China Southern is bringing forward its 5 times weekly LHR service perhaps suggests that further deliveries to that carrier are now imminent.

China Southern may not have pilots/crews trained or available to fly home the aircraft and Boeing has put them in a holding pattern until further notice. If they Fly To LHR (X5) it will be with a big send-off publication at it will mark a new era for China Aviation
