Boeing to delay delivery of 787s to Chinese carriers

3-Dec-2012 1:05 PM

China Southern Airlines' Boeing 787 has reportedly been stored because the aircraft has yet to receive its airworthiness certificate from CAAC (Evening News, 30-Nov-2012). Boeing reportedly commenced assembly of China Southern's fourth of 10 787s last week while the first three, which have completed assembly and painting, have been stored as it is unable to receive its airworthiness certificate from CAAC. Delivery for the carrier's first 787 has not been disclosed while Hainan Airlines previously stated it expects delivery of its first 787 to be in 2Q2013.
