Boeing delay deliveries of 787 parts

Boeing has asked suppliers for a two week halt in deliveries on parts for the 787 Dreamliner.

The manufacturer requested the suspension after delays at Alenia Aeronautica, the Italian supplier responsible for making the horizontal stabilisers, a part of the plane’s tail, Airwise reported.

Boeing spokesperson Loretta Gunter said postponement would not affect the first 787 delivery date.

The 787 which is already delayed by three years from its original schedule, has had two prior suspensions in deliveries due to problems with parts this year.

Boeing has received 847 orders for the Dreamliner and expects to enter service by mid-February.
