Boeing stated it has "a lot of confidence" in its plan to commence B787 test flights by the end of 2009, with CEO, Jim McNerney, stating Boeing has learned not to promise a timetable that it cannot meet (Reuters, 02-Sep-2009). Separately, Mr McNerney reportedly stated that demand for new aircraft remains "good" (StreetInsider, 02-Sep-2009).

Boeing: "At the end of the day, I think customers value people who deliver and not people who promiseā€¦ We're going to be far more disciplined in the next couple of developments," Jim McNerney, CEO. Source: Reuters, 02-Sep-2009
