Delays in Boeing Co.'s 787 program have given the company extra time to fine-tune the plane's electronics and other systems, lowering the risk that it will encounter problems during flight testing, the head of its commercial jet division said. Speaking in New York at an aerospace and defense conference, Scott Carson said Boeing had "great confidence that the airplane will be ready to go as we've scheduled it."

Scott Carson is stepping aside as the head of Boeing Co.'s troubled airplane business, part of a sweeping management shake-up announced Monday by the Chicago aerospace manufacturer. Carson, 63, plans to retire from Boeing effective Jan. 1 but will depart his current post Tuesday. He will be replaced by Jim Albaugh, 59, who has run Boeing's defense business since 2002. Albaugh's replacement is Dennis Muilenburg, 45, president of an $8-billion Boeing unit that provides support to the company's military customers.

Boeing Co. said the initial test flight and delivery of its long-awaited 787 jetliner remained on schedule. The Chicago aerospace company has postponed introduction of the next-generation aircraft four times because of production glitches and a two-month strike last fall. The delays have cost Boeing credibility and billions of dollars in anticipated costs and penalties. Scott Carson, president and chief executive of Boeing's commercial aircraft division, said Boeing continued to work toward the inaugural 787 test flight in the second quarter of this year and the first delivery in the first quarter of 2010.

Boeing Co. said Tuesday that its star-crossed 787 Dreamliner had another setback that will again delay its first flight and first delivery. The Dreamliner, already running about two years late, was due to take wing by next week. However, those plans are on hold after Chicago-based Boeing discovered in testing the aircraft's structure last month that it needed to reinforce areas where the wings are joined with the main fuselage.

Boeing Co. said Tuesday that it was still working through "wrinkles" in the supply chain for its new 787 Dreamliner and hoped to deliver the first aircraft in late 2008. There are still "significant supply-chain wrinkles," said Scott Carson, chief of Boeing's commercial airplane group. Parts shortages are declining and there's greater availability of fasteners needed to assemble the aircraft, Chicago-based Boeing said.

The Human Relations Commission in Carson has recommended that the City Council reconsider a proposal by a residents' group to rename a city park in honor of a former city worker of Samoan descent. In a 6-1 vote, the commission said the citizens' group had been treated unfairly by the City Council because it was required to excessively document public support for the renaming of Gen. Winfield Scott Park. The group wants to rename the park in honor of Harry T.

I totally disagree with Steve Springer's analysis on the present Bulls and the past Lakers ["On the Record," April 16]. This is an unfair comparison to begin with, because of the constant evolution of the game. In today's NBA, defenses are more sophisticated than in the past. The game is more complex, more cerebral, more physical and more athletic. Wilt couldn't dominate in today's game as he did in the past. Defense is the key to winning today. The Bulls' traps, presses, double teams and switches would confound the Lakers.

Boeing Co.'s plan to form an in-flight Internet venture with the three largest U.S. airlines collapsed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks led to a slump in air travel. Boeing halted talks with AMR Corp.'s American, UAL Corp.'s United and Delta Air Lines Inc., which tentatively agreed in June to take equity stakes in the venture. Connexion planned to start equipping as many as 1,500 planes with e-mail and live television by late 2002.

Boeing Co. may build a new wing for its 15-year-old 777 plane to compete with the Airbus A350 as the Chicago company's Dreamliner model loses out on contracts when a bigger aircraft is needed. Airbus' A350-1000 will seat 350 people when it enters service in 2013 -- 60 more than the largest 787 Dreamliner. The 777 can carry almost 370 passengers but needs a new wing to boost its efficiency, Boeing commercial planes chief Scott Carson said. He added that Boeing could also respond with a bigger 787 or even an all-new model.

Boeing Co. won an order from an unidentified customer for five 777 commercial aircraft worth about $1 billion. The Chicago-based company disclosed the order on its website last week. The value of the order for the 777-300ER models is based on their $218-million list price and doesn't reflect discounts normally given to customers.
