Didn't know they had 787's already

The Federal Aviation Administration said it will fine US Airways and UAL United Airlines for safety violations. United could be fined $3.8 million for flying one of its Boeing 787 jets on more than 200 flights with shop towels covering the oil sump area rather than protected caps, a violation of its own maintenance procedures, the government agency said. US Airways could be fined $5.4 million for operating eight aircraft that were not compliant to various air-worthiness directives for a total of 1,647 flights. That included on Embraer 190 aircraft not in compliance for inspections to prevent a cargo door from opening during flight, the agency said.
 
I believe it was there 777's not there 787's.
 
Any 777 drivers....how exactly does a "shop rag" cover the sump area? Is this just collect waste fluid or would this allow vital fluid to leave the system?
