The FAA approved Boeing's plan to inspect and modify manufacturing flaws in the Boeing 787-9. The manufacturer will be able to resume deliveries of its planes after this.

Boeing won't immediately resume deliveries after the FAA approves inspection and modification of the 787s. FAA inspectors need to approve each aircraft before Boeing can resume deliveries. The US aviation watchdog wanted Boeing to make sure it had a plan for re-work on a large amount of new 787s in storage.

Boeing halted the delivery of its popular widebody aircraft due to manufacturing flaws in some of its jets. More than two years have passed since production quality control issues with the Dreamliners were first reported. Due to production quality control issues, the deliveries were halted again in May 2021. Boeing engineers discovered gaps in the forward pressure bulkhead on July 13th.

In a speech to Boeing employees earlier this year, the company's CEO said, "We are progressing through a comprehensive effort to ensure every787 in our production system conforms to our exacting specifications." We are confident that it is the right thing to do, despite the fact that this effort continues to impact our deliveries.

Boeing Plans To Ramp Up B787 Production

After the regulators allow the aircraft to restart deliveries, Boeing plans to ramp up production of the plane. Stan Deal, the President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, stated during an interview that Boeing will ramp up production as it reduces the inventory of undelivered Dreamliners.

The rate of production will increase from one to three. In 6 months, it will increase to five jets a month. At the presentation of second-quarter results that took place this week, Brian West, Boeing's CFO, said that the company had 120 of the jets in inventory and was making progress on the necessary work to prepare them for delivery.

Delivery delays and customer concessions, and another $1 billion in abnormal production costs were disclosed by Boeing in January.

Once the deliveries resume, American Airlines is expected to take delivery of the first plane. The carrier expects to get two new planes in August. The airline said that it expects to get nine of the planes.
