Boeing finally delivered the first 787 today, September 25, 2011. At long last this market can cash out.

wstritt   •   Sun Sep 18 2011 at 06:47am PDT

First delivery is September 26th per Boing website. 28th appears to be first ANA flight.

At long last, September 28, 2011.

Boeing 787 market has been very very good to me.

Same here. I have around $1 million in this market, so it’s been good to me too. I don’t know what I’ll do with that much cash.

SEATTLE – Boeing pushed back deliveries of its new 787 Dreamline again on Tuesday, meaning that the soonest it will arrive is July.
Boeing said it expects to deliver the plane during the third quarter, which would be between July and the end of September .

Looks like 4Q11 or maybe even 2012 now. Probably need to extend market closing again.

Boeing just announced first delivery delayed until 2010.

wstritt   •   Wed Jul 02 2008 at 08:54pm PDT

For anyone else keeping track, first delivery is scheduled for sometime in the 3rd quarter of 2009 assuming no further delays. That translates into another 90-100 inklings from current 505 (3/20/09 date) but no payout for at least 12 months.

wstritt   •   Wed Jul 23 2008 at 06:05pm PDT

On the other hand, the market closes on 5/1/09. Will it cash out as of that date if no delivery? Or will market be extended? Or trading halted until ultimate payout?

…and apparently, now that we’ve reached 100, we can’t move the date any further back than Feb 2008…

wstritt   •   Mon Oct 15 2007 at 10:03am PDT

Never thought about price getting capped at $100 since there is no way for delivery to occur as early as Feb 2008. Even if start date was 12/2008, at $1 day (which appears to be the rate of movement) the market would have capped out in April 2008, before the original delivery date. Maybe a September 2008 start date would have worked?

nate   •   Mon Oct 15 2007 at 01:32pm PDT

sorry the cap at $100 isn’t intentional. will get it fixed soon.

sircu5   •   Sun Oct 14 2007 at 11:19pm PDT

I agree. Maybe the market was supposed to start at December 2008?

wstritt   •   Sun Oct 14 2007 at 09:24am PDT

Hmmmm. Let’s see. Originally scheduled first delivery was May 2008. Boeing announces at least 6 month delay. That adds up to???? And market currently at December 2007. Free money to be had aside from wait for payoff. Not a terribly efficient market.
