B787 will definitely be delayed again: Air Lease Corp

Air Lease Corp CEO Steven Udvar-Hazy stated he believes the B787 will definitely be delayed a seventh time, due to the electrical fire on 09-Nov-2010 that forced Boeing to suspend the test-flight programme (Bloomberg, 18-Nov-2010). Boeing has not announced when the aircraft will resume test flying, or what affect the suspension of the certification process will have on the initial delivery of the aircraft, scheduled for mid-1Q2011.
