- Boeing (BA) is struggling to cope with an increase in the production of 787 jets to 10 a month and is facing a major backlog of unfinished work, Reuters reports.
- Some employees are skeptical that the company will be able to keep up the pace, with one problem being not enough skilled workers at Boeing's South Carolina plant.
- The ramp up in output is important for the firm to be able to start breaking even on the Dreamliner.
- Boeing said that the "787 program remains on track to meet its delivery commitments in 2014."
- Separately, Boeing has said that Air India is not satisfied with the performance of its Dreamliners following a series of glitches over recent months. Another complaint is that the 787 isn't reportedly as fuel efficient as Boeing has claimed.
