American Airlines Group Inc. expects to receive all 13 of its tardy 787 Dreamliners this year, offering some relief for Boeing Co. investors -- if not travelers. Most of the jets will arrive too late for the crucial summer travel season.

The airline’s update provides insight into a key issue for Boeing a week before it reports earnings: the resumption of Dreamliner handovers that have been largely halted since October 2020 amid a rash of tiny production flaws.
