Boeing 787 Dreamliner - will it ever fly?

Jump to last reply

Last month, Boeing said it was delaying the first flight of the 787 Dreamliner until some time between mid-November and mid-December. Now it has been put back to the end of the first quarter 2008, with first deliveries at the end of the year.

Are there serious problems which will prevent the plane ever getting off the ground? Will the number of new orders now slow down? Is this good news for Airbus?

Is the Dreamliner a nightmare?
