NO 787s: United Airlines said it will plan its schedule through June 5 assuming that the grounded 787 is not ready to fly before then.

DENVER-TOKYO: You'll have to swim. United Continental Holdings Inc. has postponed its planned new 787 flights between those two cities until the 787 is flying again. Those flights were supposed to start March 31.

WILL IT FLY? Boeing Co. is widely expected to present possible interim fixes to the FAA on Friday, which is likely to scrutinize the fixes closely. It could still be some time before the 787 is flying again.
