    Boeing Co. (BA) plans to deliver its first 747-8 freighter to Cargolux Airlines International SA in September, mirroring the schedule for its delayed 787 Dreamliner.
    Jim Albaugh, head of the Boeing [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue ! important]Commercial [COLOR=blue ! important]Airplanes[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] unit, provided the delivery update at an investor conference Thursday, with the U.S. company finally moving closer to securing revenue from the twin programs after a series of production and design delays.
    Albaugh said he expects the 787 flight-test program to be completed this weekend, with certification for the plane and the 747 freighter expected this month.

    Qatar Dreamliner delay blamed in Boeing-Cargolux spat

    Boeing Co has scrambled to iron out contract problems that forced it to postpone the first delivery of a stretched model of its iconic 747 jumbo jet, driving down its shares.
    The US planemaker was due to deliver the first freighter version of its significantly revamped 747-8 to Luxembourg-based freight carrier Cargolux on Monday.
    But in an embarrassing setback, it was forced to scratch a lavish three-day celebration, including a surprise musical act, after receiving a letter from the European carrier on Friday.
    Both sides blamed "contract issues" for the delay, rather than the technical problems that pushed the program back about two years. A performance problem could have cast greater doubt over subsequent deliveries.

    Boeing 747-8 Receives ICAO ‘Heavy’ Designation for Separation

    EVERETT, Wash., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The new Boeing (NYSE: BA) 747-8 will be able to operate at the same separation distances as the 747-400, according to a ruling from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). ICAO, a United Nations agency tasked with codifying principles and techniques for international air navigation, sent a letter to all member nations recently saying that a team of wake experts had examined flight test and simulation data, and that it determined that the 747-8 should remain in the same class as its predecessor and retain the same separation distances.
