LONDON – Via a report from Bloomberg, Boeing has said it will take its time with deliveries of its 787 aircraft.
At the Singapore Air Show, the CEO and President of the commercial wing, Stan Deal, mentioned that it is in talks with affected airlines.
“We hope the power of the product is going to get us through. But we don’t take that for granted.”
“We’re not going to rush the process.”
In the January financials for Boeing, it is understood delays to the 787 deliveries have cost the company around $5.5bn.
Such profits from this program have been wiped out due to such delivery disruptions taking place.
There hasn’t been a delivery of any 787 since June last year due to tiny imperfections on the carbon-fiber jet frames.
This, alongside the $31bn worth of black holes caused by the 737 MAX crisis over the last three years, has caused a lot of financial deterioration within the company.
