SC's first Dreamliner could be with Air India by the end of the month

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - South Carolina's first Boeing Dreamliner could be in the hands of Air India by the end of this month.

The first 787 assembled in South Carolina rolled out with fanfare in April and has been sitting at the North Charleston final assembly plant with three other Dreamliners.

The President of Boeing India, Dinesh Keskar, said he is confident one or two of the Dreamliners will go to India this month.

The first will be a plane assembled in Everett, Washington and the second will be from South Carolina.

Keskar says it is up to India's Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs to make the final call, but Keskar says he is expecting a favorable solution.

Negotiations over the price of the long delayed Dreamliner have held up the 787 delivery.
