Boeing to struggle with 787 Dreamliner surplus


As a result of overproduction, Boeing has parked a large amount of 787s around its factories. Airlines do not want to purchase or take delivery of the aircraft yet.

To compensate for losses on the 737 MAX, which has been on the ground since March 2019, Boeing decided to increase its 787 production. Every month, 14 Dreamliners roll off the American manufacturers production line, a record amount for widebody aircraft.

Airlines do not yet want to take delivery of the ordered aircraft, mainly due to the corona crisis. Boeing therefore parks the surplus aircraft wherever there is space. 787s are located around the factory buildings, on an old runway and in a parking lot for employees. Due to the lack of space, several aircraft have already been stored in the desert near Victorville, California.
