The 787 underwent rigorous flight tests before the first landing. Boeing has six aircraft to use for flight tests.
Boeing experienced a number of costly delays as suppliers had trouble getting work done on time. But, with more than 850 orders for the 787 on its books, Boeing expects the aircraft to make money over the long term.
