It's confirmed, Air Pacific cancels 787 order

Boeing confirmed to ATW that Fiji's Air Pacific has canceled its order for eight 787 aircraft “and is no longer a Boeing 787 customer.” Orders for five Dreamliners were initially placed in 2006 and three more were placed in 2008.

A Boeing spokesman told ATW, “We recognize that Air Pacific's evolving business model has affected its fleet requirement. Air Pacific and Boeing continue to work with each other on solutions for replacing the airline's current widebody fleet.”

Boeing in January announced the seventh delay in the 787 program.
