Boeing's 787-9 Dreamliner is reportedly under investigation.

The US Justice Department has reportedly subpoenaed Boeing for records on the production of the 787 Dreamliner, signaling an expansion of its Boeing 737 Max criminal investigation to the airline's larger, luxury aircraft. Citing two sources, the Seattle Times on Friday said there have been "allegations of shoddy work" and corner-cutting on Dreamliner production in South Carolina.

Boeing's 737 Max MCAS flight control system was blamed as the cause of two crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia that killed 346 people. Boeing completed test flights for the software fix to its grounded 737 Max airliner in April, and in May said the update was finished and ready for evaluation by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Boeing sued by more than 400 pilots in class action over 737 MAX's 'unprecedented cover-up' More than 400 pilots have joined a class action against American plane manufacturer Boeing, seeking damages in the millions over what they allege was the company's "unprecedented cover-up" of the "known design flaws" of the latest edition of its top-selling jet, the 737 MAX.

According to the Seattle Times, a third source said several Boeing employees were subpoenaed on the Dreamliner production plant in North Charleston, South Carolina, earlier in June. These subpoenas came from the same DOJ prosecutors involved in the 737 Max investigation, the report said.

The DOJ is looking into "broad cultural problems" at Boeing, the Seattle Times said a source suggested.

There's still no schedule for when the 737 Max will be back in the air, but earlier this month Boeing scored a deal with International Airlines Group -- including British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia and Vueling -- which will buy 200 737 Max 8s and 10s.

Boeing is crowding its employee parking lot with undelivered 737 Max jets, and the company says that's part of its 'inventory-management plan' Boeing's employee parking lot is packed with grounded 737 Max jets, the local Seattle news station KING-TV first reported last month. Boeing has lost more than $US1 billion throughout the 737 Max debacle, according to the company's most recent earnings report. And storing those planes is yet another hit to the embattled plane maker's bottom line. It costs some $US2,000 a month per plane, Bloomberg reported.
