Boeing Slashes Prices On 'Overweight' Dreamliners

Aircraft Were Among The First Produced By The Company

When the FAA first certified the 787, Boeing got a bit of bad news. The first of the airliners were heavier than expected, so they did not have range projected by the planemaker.

Ten of those aircraft have been sitting on the ramp at Boeing's Everett, WA final assembly plant. But now, the U.K. newspaper The Daily Mail reports that two airlines are about to  snap up the overweight airliners at about half the cost of those coming off the assembly line today.

The two carriers are Air Austral and Ethiopian Airlines, which are said to be in "advanced talks" with the planemaker for the airplanes, dubbed the "terrible teens." French carrier Air Austral is reportedly in negotiations for two of the Dreamliners, while Ethiopian would acquire the other eight. 

The airplanes still need to be completed. Their manufacture was suspended when it was discovered that they would not meet the company's performance projections.

Boeing is reportedly offering the 10 airplanes at $1 billion combined.
