Boeing (BA) officially resumes deliveries of the 787, the latest step towards putting the lithium-ion battery fiasco in the rearview. The first delivery since January 16 was made to All Nippon Airways Tuesday and the company says it still expects to deliver 60 of the planes this year. Profit margins may be pinched in the interim however, as the planes now making their way to customers are also some of the earlier jets, which cost more to produce and were discounted to lull buyers, Reuters notes.
