The program cost begin dropping in late Q3/early Q4. After that the increase in 787-9 and eventually the -10 will drive the program cost to 0. Since the program costs have already been spent and offset by profits on other planes, it is actually making money now despite claims that it is not. The R&D and NPSU (new product start up) costs provide a hefty tax credit.
I have not seen any sign of shortages. It will show up in NYC787 site data if they start missing flight test target dates.
According to NYC787 site:
19 scheduled for august delivery. 4 are ready for delivery, 6 are in flight test, 9 are in pre-flight prep.
14 scheduled for September delivery. 1 in pre-flight prep,12 in final assembly, 1 scheduled to start final assembly on 7/29.
Quite an improvement I production. Now they need to improve delivery.
According to NYC787 site, it is one of 4 787's scheduled for delivery on Monday the 27th.
The remaining two are scheduled for delivery before the 30th.

Boeing #$%$ Friday named Mark Jenks to lead its flagship 787 Dreamliner program following the July 31 retirement of Larry Loftis, a company veteran credited with transforming its jet-manufacturing operations.
With 7 days left in the month, BA has delivered only 33 planes per the reporting sites.
Only 22 737's. If 737 production is 42 a month, there must be a bunch of planes sitting on the tarmac.
They need to get off the dime and open the delivery gates.
From avio news:
(WAPA) - Boeing and key Japanese partners JAI (Japan Aircraft Industries) and JADC (Japan Aircraft Development Corporation) today signed a formal agreement for significant work on new B-777X airplane.
The agreement finalizes last year’s announcement of a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to provide approximately 21 percent of the major airplane structure components for the aircraft. The contract includes fuselage sections; center wing sections; pressure bulkhead; main landing gear wells; passenger, cargo and main landing gear doors; wing components and wing-body fairings.
JAI consists of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI), Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI), ShinMaywa Industries (SMIC) and NIPPI Corporation (NIPPI). JADC is a non-profit foundation established to enhance the competitiveness of the Japanese aircraft industry.
Per the NYC787 site, 18 are scheduled for August delivery.
Of those, 2 are ready for delivery, 5 are in flight test. 10 are in pre-flight test and 1 is in the last stage of final assembly.
Using that logic, then would it not be reasonable and proper to apply the restriction to all individuals who receive any form of federal money?
The NYC787 site has some interesting info on the 787 program in its last two entries.
If BA can meet the delivery dates scheduled for Q3, it seems that the deferred program costs should start to fall in Q4. That means they start seeing profit on each 787 sale in Q4 as BA stated in the past.
Jeremy Kissinger, an event coordinator on his way to Los Angeles with his friends for vacation, was sitting in row 37 of the plane when he noticed a passenger who appeared to have passed out several rows in front of him. Flight attendants began attending to the passenger.
“There was an announcement that there was a problem with the air and they were going to drop the masks,” Kissinger said.
Kissinger said everything seemed normal until the oxygen masks came down, adding that he noticed several people heading to the bathrooms as soon as they were able. He did not smell anything out of the ordinary nor experience any illness but said other people in the same general area fell ill.
Werner Lieberherr (CEO) did not perform well in the conf. call. He often made comments when none were necessary and sounded like he was just making attempts to make himself seem important.
Why did the masks deploy? Is this normal for an Airbus flight?
From News media:
One person was being treated at a hospital and five others reported nausea and headaches after oxygen masks deployed on UAL Flight 447 from Denver to Los Angeles, an Airbus A320, the Grand Junction Fire Department told NBC News. Shawn Montgomery, a spokesman for the fire department, said the hospitalization was likely a precaution because of the patient's medical history.
United said in a statement that the diversion was "due to a medical issue onboard." All passengers were evacuated safely and were to be flown to Los Angeles on a different plane, it said.
Kored, it is 3pm and it's at 146 and change. Not much time left for a dump.
