American’s first 787 delivery delayed to 2015

American Airlines plans to take delivery of its first Boeing 787-8 in the first quarter of 2015, an at least two month delay from previous expectations of a November delivery.

“As with any first delivery of a new fleet type, there are a number of things that have to be coordinated before it is introduced to ensure we deliver a state-of-the-art product for our employees and customers,” the Fort Worth, Texas-based carrier says. “We’re working with our partners at Boeing to make it happen.”
These “things” include the certification and installation of new premium seats that American had developed specifically for the 787, the Dallas Morning News reports.

American had expected the delivery of two 787-8s before the end of the year and another 11 in 2015, the Ascend Fleets database shows. It is unclear how the delay will impact the delivery schedule.

The carrier has firm orders for 16 787-8s and 26 787-9s, Ascend shows.

The 787 is now expected to enter service with American on domestic routes in the second quarter of 2015 before shifting to international routes a few weeks later, the airline says.
