The prolonged grounding of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner has forced some airlines to seek alternative arrangements, including renting other planes to fill gaps for the upcoming busy summer travel season.

It's a sign that some Boeing customers don't expect a quick fix to the 787's problems.

Jeff Knittel of airplane leasing company CIT said Tuesday that unnamed airlines are talking to CIT about alternatives to the Dreamliner. Interest has come from a handful of airlines that already have the plane or were supposed to get it before the summer travel season.
