CHICAGO, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- U.S. plane maker Boeing Co. denied long-delayed deliveries of the 787 Dreamliner would be set back another 10 months.

A report published in Aviation Week said Boeing was discussing a 10-month delay for the $150 million to $205.5 million planes that have already seen delivery dates pushed back nearly three years, the Chicago Tribune reported Saturday.

Boeing has orders for 847 Dreamliners, the first -- according to the most current official schedule -- to be delivered to All Nippon Airways in the first quarter of 2011.

On Friday, Boeing spokeswoman Loretta Gunter said the recent report of delays was based on old news.

"Today's press reports about new 787 delivery timing for several customers appear to be based on the program schedule announced in August," she said.

She added, "We don't comment on the individual delivery schedules of our customers."
