787 Dreamliner

CHICAGO (AP) -- Boeing Company says today its schedule for the 787 Dreamliner remains on track.

Officials at the Chicago-based aerospace company say they don't envision further delays in the much-ballyhooed airplane.

Two months ago, Boeing pushed back flight testing and initial deliveries of the aircraft by six months.

Scott Carson is head of Boeing's Seattle-based commercial airplane manufacturing division.

He says the company is still "ironing out significant supply chain wrinkles" but there's no revisions to the latest schedule.

The first plane is expected to fly in the first quarter and deliveries will begin late next year.
