RAM defers 787 delivery until 2014

Posted 12 September 2012 · Add Comment

Moroccan national carrier Royal Air Maroc is believed to have deferred delivery of its Boeing 787s until at least the end of 2014.

RAM was due to be one of the first recipients of the type with deliveries planned for this year and the aircraft – in RAM colours – has been seen at the Seattle Boeing factory.

But according to Flightglobal, the airline says the postponement is due to a reconfiguration of Boeing's delivery schedule, and that Royal Air Maroc would now be receiving aircraft with better specifications.

Since 2005, RAM has had four General Electric GEnx-powered 787-8s on order, plus one additional aircraft on option.

Boeing has not commented on the change of schedule
