African airlines are believed to be at the front of the queue to purchase ten of the first manufactured models of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner currently parked at Boeing's Everitt Factory near Seattle,

The aircraft are expected to be sold for around half the cost of the catalogue price of $218 million, in order to free them from the drag on Boeing’s balance sheet.
According to news agency Bloomberg, the aircraft have been dubbed “terrible teens” for their assembly struggles and their places near the start of the production run. The original customers were said to have balked because the aircraft were too heavy, limiting their range.
Eager to convert a record order backlog into cash, Boeing had stepped up production before the Dreamliner was certified as airworthy. The company ended up having to retrofit about 60 of the first jets to match design changes made during flight testing, Bloomberg said.
Work included heavy structural reinforcements to bolster their composite shells, and the early models were set aside while Boeing focused resources on later models that it could get more quickly to customers. Carriers including All Nippon Airways and Transaero Airlin...

Indonesia’s transport ministry has revoked Lion Air’s rights to operate 10 daily services on seven routes.

This comes after the low-cost carrier was found to have not operated the services for more than 21 days without notifying the ministry.

The affected routes are Surabaya-Ambon, Surabaya-Jakarta, Makassar-Jayapura, Makassar-Jakarta, Lombok-Jakarta, Jakarta-Jambi and Yogyakarta-Palangkaraya.

Although Lion has applied to restore services on some of these routes, the country's director general of civil aviation has turned down the request, citing the airline's non-adherence to the ministerial order issued in 2008.

An article in the order states that carriers who wish to suspend their services on a particular route for 21 days or more will have to notify the director general.

In the instance Lion Air wishes to resume the suspended services, it will have to make a fresh application, says the ministry
