B747-8F initial delivery could suffer another delay

Cowen & Co and JPMorgan Chase & Co analysts forecast Boeing’s B747-8F could potentially miss its initial delivery target due to minor and undisclosed “issues” (Bloomberg, 24-May-2011). Cowen & Co believes the initial delivery of a B747-8F to Cargolux Airlines could be deferred by six to eight weeks, as Boeing finalises changes and completes other work on the B747-8 assembly line.
