ANA: Still Mulling Boeing Compensation On Dreamliner Delay

Posted in Airline News, Nippon AirwaysNo comments

All Nippon Airways (9202.TO) said Friday that it is still considering compensation from Boeing Co. (BA) after the aircraft maker announced another delay in delivering its 787 Dreamliner jets.
Japan’s second biggest airline company by revenue is the first customer for the 787 jet program.
The U.S. company said it is pushing back the schedule of its troubled 787 jet program by about six months as it unravels delays caused by a recent union- machinists strike and by problems of improperly installed fasteners on the first few planes.
The latest move is “extremely regrettable,” an ANA spokesman said.
Boeing said it is moving the airplane’s maiden flight to sometime in the second quarter of 2009, with the first delivery to ANA occurring sometime “into the first quarter of 2010.”
The Japanese airline is still assessing how large impact the delays have its business, the ANA spokesman added.
