Flightblogger reports possible 787 schedule slip

Jon Ostrower is reporting that there may be a schedule slip to the 1st flight of the 787 from mid December to possibly into early January, 2009. The reason behind the potential delay is not related to the potential strike by the IAM but rather to outfitting ZA001 with flight test and other cabin equipment. Also there was some time consuming trouble shooting related to some small systems integration issues but the net result of all this is eating up mostif not all the margin that program managers had left for themselves.
