A Boeing Commercial Airplanes spokeswoman told the Associated Press Tuesday that final assembly of the 787 is continuing at its Everett, Wash., plant and that the temporary delay won't affect work under way. Boeing remains on track to deliver the first 787 to a customer late this year, she told the AP.
Boeing asked the companies that make the large sections of the 787 jetliner to hold back shipping the assemblies for two of the jets for about a month, the AP reports. Some of the manufacturers are having difficulty getting components to finish their sections and some need to complete engineering and design changes Boeing desires, AP says.
