Boeing (BA) will never finish its 787 Dreamliner, not at least during the lifetime of anyone over 40. The company said it would make a statement about it plans for the plane this Wednesday. It will almost certainly say that the launch of the 787 is off-track again.
According to Reuters "Such a setback would be the third major change to the original schedule and put first delivery of the lightweight, fuel-efficient aircraft as much as 18 months behind the original target."
By the time the plane is ready, fuel will be too expensive to fly it anyway.
