UBS analyst David Strauss reckons that Boeing (BA) might not start making a profit on the 787 until 2021 - far later than the company's projection of 2015 - unless it can bring down costs more quickly. Strauss estimates that Boeing was recently spending $232M to build each Dreamliner but was charging customers just half of that on average. Still, despite the 787's various hiccups, customers seem to be happy with its performance.
