Boeing sees more Dreamliner cancellations, still upbeat

23 October 2011

U.S. plane maker Boeing Co predicted more sales cancellations for its delayed Dreamliner 787, after a Chinese airline scrapped 24 orders, but said the overall order book for the new long-range aircraft remained strong.

A day after news of China Eastern’s cancellations, a Boeing executive said some orders would fall through as it adjusted delivery dates and that the pace of production of the fuel-efficient aircraft would pick up.

Analysts said other Chinese airlines might also now decide to cancel Dreamliners as they re-assess the long-haul market.
