What reasons were given for those airlines rejecting those airframes? Air Maroc won't be receiving it's first till late 2014.... unless financing was also an issue.

These are just overweighted, and due to big backlog of frames which needed change-incorporation/re-work, Boeing couldn't re-work them for time. So RAM deffered deliveries, but will get better frames (without overweight) in 2014. The same situation is with ANA's and LAN's framese. Airlines could get better frames faster, so they don't need these terrible teens. But these have one primary advantage - are cheap as hell. So will find customers.
4 will go to Transaero: LN11, LN12, LN14, LN22. 3 are undergoing rework and will be delivered in late 2014 with 4th probably early 2015. Other 7 will be sold to, probably for RwandAir (LN17 and LN19) and Lion Air (LN10, LN13, LN15, LN16, LN18), but still no confirmation from Boeing.

After 3.5 hours it's still circling above eastern Washington and has yet to make a touch and go at Moses Lake before it will return to Boeing Field. It does look like it will make a full first flight profile, it's already too late to return early.

ps.
The plane will be based at Boeing Field during the testing phase, it won't take up a spot on the flightline in Everett the coming months.
