‘FlightGlobal is reporting the airline told employees in a bulletin that those remaining planes will be further delayed. The airline said those delays may disrupt its plans for using Dreamliners on domestic flights on the original schedule, but won’t change its schedule for using the advanced twinjets on international flights.’
United received its first 787 in September after a 3 and half year delay. That 787 will make its first revenue flight on November 4th from Houston to Chicago.
There is no definitive word on how delayed the jets will be.
