787 DELAYS CAUSES CONTINENTAL TO SUSPEND LAUNCH OF NEW ROUTE

Continental Airlines has stated it has postponed the November 2011 launch of it Houston to Auckland route until 2012 due to the continued delays in the Boeing 787 program.

Continental was unable to confirm when it expects to receive its first 787.

“In anticipation of Boeing advising us of further delays, we’re going to push the service to 2012,” said Julie King, Continental spokeswoman. “Commencement of the service does depend on delivery of the 787.”

Continental is a launch customer for the new aircraft and has 25 787s on order.
