Is one of these a member of the infamous gang of sixteen fat overweight 787-8’s that had to be held up for modifications and have been declined by their airlines for failing to meet specification? A RAM version has been sitting about in Seattle for over two years. Maybe they were given such a massive discount in the end to take it?
Yes I have seen it at PAE. I believe it will be a new production aircraft although that remains an unknown. So far Boeing has not found any buyers for the 16 early underperforming models. All the best.
