In July, Boeing warned of further possible delays to its new 787 Dreamliner as well as the 747-8.

 Now the company has confirmed that it expects delivery of the first 787 to be in the middle of the first quarter 2011.

Boeing said that this latest delivery date revision follows an assessment of the availability of an engine needed for the final phases of flight test this fall.

While Boeing works closely with Rolls-Royce to expedite engine availability, flight testing across the test fleet continues as planned.

ANA is the launch customer for the new aircraft.
