We’ve updated our plans for the 787 Dreamliner’s first flight and deliveries. Here’s the news release: Boeing Revises 787 First Flight and Delivery Plans.
Obviously there’s been a lot of anticipation in the aviation and financial communities surrounding this announcement. We’ve undertaken an extensive assessment with input from across the 787 program and our partners to reach this new schedule.

It is disappointing to us as well. As program chief Pat Shanahan said this morning, we want to get this right, and we’re confident in our plan going forward. But the key is performance.
