The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has reportedly told Boeing that the documentation it submitted to win approval to resume 787 deliveries to airlines is incomplete.
Reuters’ Eric Johnson and David Shepardson report that the FAA identified a number of omissions in Boeing’s documentation, submitted in late April, and has sent portions of it back to the planemaker.
Boeing Chief Executive Dave Calhoun highlighted the submission in the company’s April 27 earnings call, calling it a “very important step” and saying it was preparing the first 787s for delivery, but stopped short of providing a date.
The reaction was swift as this potentially means more delays for deliveries…
There was one thing that we can learn from this episode – algos don’t read Reuters…
Do algos even read Reuters? BA news hit Reuters 10 mins ago/ virtually no reaction.
