Qatar Airways Ltd. said it’s interested in being the first customer for the 787-10, a larger version of the Dreamliner being considered by Boeing Co.
Boeing Co. said replacing improperly installed shims on its new 787 Dreamliners will take 10 to 14 days per airplane and doesn’t indicate that the model needs a redesign.
Boeing Co. said it will replace the head of its 747-8 Freighter program, plagued by production delays, hours after announcing the sixth postponement in shipments of the 787 Dreamliner.
Boeing Co. , whose engineers are redesigning a part on the new 747-8 jumbo jet, may announce a fourth financial charge for the aircraft and another delay that could make it almost two years late.
"On the development side, we're back into our stride."
