    American Airlines disclosed Monday that it has a revised agreement with Boeing that confirms American’s order of 42 Boeing 787 Dreamliners and moves up the first delivery to November 2014.

    The disclosure in a Securities and Exchange filing says that Boeing and American have agreed to “an accelerated delivery schedule for the 787 aircraft with deliveries scheduled to commence in November 2014 and to continue in each calendar year through September 2018, and the confirmation of the purchase of the Boeing 787 aircraft, which previously had been subject to certain reconfirmation rights.”

    Unless I'm misreading it, the article doesn't actually say that the 2014 deliveries will be 789s. My understanding is that they swapped 20 of the 789 orders for 788s in order to get them delivered faster.
