    Qantas (QF) has canceled firm commitments for 35 Boeing 787-9s - reducing capital expenditure by US$8.5 billion at list prices, the Group said in a statement.

    It will retain 50 787-9 options and purchase rights, available for delivery from 2016. The restructure will result in a two-year delay of its first 787-9 delivery, the Group said. There are no changes to its plans for the 787-8, with the first of 15 scheduled for delivery in the second half of 2013.

    "Qantas continues to practice disciplined capital management and, in the context of returning Qantas International to profit, this is a prudent decision," QF Group CEO Alan Joyce said. "The 787 is an excellent aircraft and remains an important part of our future. However, circumstances have changed significantly since our order several years ago. It is vital that we allocate capital carefully across all parts of the Group.”

    QF in 2009 canceled orders for 15 787-9s, bringing its order book for the aircraft to 50 (ATW Daily News, June 29, 2009), and in May deferred deliveries of Airbus A380s, reducing capital expenditure in 2012-13 by about US$400 million (ATW Daily News, May 7).

    "We have 12 A380s in service across our long-haul network and the reconfiguration of nine 747s will be complete by late 2012,” Joyce said. “Boeing 737-800s will continue to enter the Qantas Domestic fleet as part of the Group’s existing fleet plan, while Airbus A330s will transfer from Jetstar as 787s are delivered. And Jetstar’s domestic and pan-Asian fleet requirements will be met over the long-term by our existing A320 order book and the arrival of 787-8s.”

    The group launched its new low cost subsidiary in early July, one month after being put on ratings watch by rating agency Standard & Poor’s which cited concerns about the Group’s international business

    “We appreciate the airline’s full confidence in the 787 Dreamliner with 15 firm orders for 787-8s and options / purchase rights for 50 787-9s,” Boeing said in a statement. “We are committed to working with Qantas to meet its fleet requirements today with 787-8s and 737-800s, and we stand ready to serve them with 787-9s to meet their long-haul fleet needs into the future. Operating in a dynamic environment, our customers’ overall fleet needs evolve and change, and our objective is to support their needs and work with them to adapt as necessary.”

    uff, menudo ostion para Boeing, pero es que la situacion de Qantas tampoco esta para tirar cohetes y no creo que mejore en corto medio plazo.
