Revised Boeing 787 schedule good news for Spirit AeroSystems

Boeing released its revised schedule 787 schedule today. The Dreamliner’s first flight is now expected by the end of the year. And first delivery is expected in the fourth quarter of 2010.

That’s good news for Spirit AeroSystems, which makes the 787’s forward fuselage.

Spirit will receive a full schedule from Boeing in early September, according to Spirit spokesman Ken Evans. “That’s when we really know for sure what the impact is going to be for us — but obviously, it’s good news.”
