7 Late 7 Official 3rd Quarter

All though I notice that most news reports didnt put in the year.

One interesting comment:

"We've also restored some margin in the schedule to allow for any additional time that may be needed to complete certification activities," Fancher said.

Translation - as there was a bunch of FAA inspectors on board the flight that went down in flames (literally) they will be paying a lot of attention to the software this time around.

The impact is significant because Boeing uncovered a number of issues as a result of the fire although not directly related to it. These things should be regarded in a positive light.
