I've been getting HF-ACARS messages for AAAAA1 = N787BA over the last two days.  There was an engine test today.

It looks like the 787 won't be flying anytime soon, it would seem that boeing need to reinforce structure where the wing box meets the center wing box at the side of the body of the aircraft.  This I imagine is not a quick fix.

They don't seem to have much luck with this beast!

you can't help but feel for them, but more importantly they are delaying the day that we all get to log this potentially fine aircraft.

Can't say I blame them, they will be looking around for something else if Boeing don't get some success

Yes, one big mess up really, when you consider that the airlines really would have benefited from the more fuel efficient aircraft right now given the financial climate. I'm sure that all will come right n the end, I fear for the A380 though, I recently heard white elephant as a description, is that not how they referred to the Concorde.

The A380 has had its problems, a mate of mine work for Airbus when they had the electrical problems, but they got through that. It just seems that Boeing are playing into Airbus's hands at the moment. We'll just have to wait and see.

Looks like the Dreamliner N7874 just left the LA area and is on an approach to an airfield apparentlty in the desert areas east of LA. Correction he is now leveled.
