Air Pacific has evidently cancelled its 787 order.

Fiji’s Air Pacific has cancelled its order for eight Boeing 787s.

“Air Pacific and Boeing confirmed that the airline has cancelled its order for eight 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft which had been scheduled for delivery in 2015,” the two companies said in a joint statement. “Both companies noted that they were continuing to work with each other on solutions for replacing the airline’s current widebody fleet of B747 and B767 aircraft.”

Air Pacific ordered five 787-9s in April 2006, taking purchase rights for another three in December 2007.
