http://www.aviationweek.com/aw/gene...dline=United Seeking Damages For Delayed 787s United Continental Holdings for the first time confirms it is seeking damages from Boeing for 787 delivery delays. The operator has 50 firm orders for the 787, a legacy of the Continental Airlines-United Airlines merger in 2010. The first batch of aircraft are 787-8s from Continental’s order, which originally had expected to add its first 787 in March 2009 before Boeing initiated a series of program delays. The latest delay hit United in October, when sources confirmed to Aviation Week that Boeing was having issues completing 787s rolling off the production line. That problem forced United to revise its 2012 delivery expectation down from six 787s throughout the year to just five, all to be delivered in the second half of the year.
