What Boeing Should Learn from the 787's Late Lift Off

On Tuesday, Boeing (BA) had a pretty successful test flight for its bet-the-company 787 Dreamliner, which has been delayed five times over the last two years. The 787 is a $166 million plane, with a capacity of 250 to 330 passengers. Boeing has 865 orders for it and an estimated $150.6 billion backlog -- 59% of Boeing's total.
