Boeing's Early 787s Sit on Runway, Sales Struggling

Feb. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Boeing Co. is struggling to find buyers for 11 of its earliest 787 Dreamliners valued at $1.1 billion after two airlines dropped orders for holdover models from the jet's troubled birth, people briefed on the plans said. The partially completed planes, which are heavier than new 787s and can't fly as far, have been parked for about four years near a Seattle-area plant. Black plastic shrouds the windows, and 17,000-pound (7,700-kilogram) counterweights dangle from wings in place of engines to keep the jets balanced. Bloomberg's Steve Biro reports.
