The Dreamliner is still a week-and-a-half away from taking off from Logan Airport again, but on Monday, United Airlines put its 787s back in the air.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner will resume daily service between Boston and Tokyo again on June 1.
Boeing CEO Jim McNerney is sure his company is “very close” to getting its troubled 787 Dreamliner jet back flying again.
Boeing said Friday it sees commercial flights of its grounded 787 jets resuming “within weeks” even though it has not pinpointed the cause of battery overheating.
At the same time the government certified Boeing’s 787 Dreamliners as safe, federal rules barred the type of batteries used to power the airliner’s electrical systems from being carried as cargo on passenger planes because of the fire risk.
It sits there on the tarmac at Logan Airport waiting for something to happen.
The burned insides of a battery in the Boeing 787 at the center of a worldwide grounding of the aircraft indicate it operated at a voltage above its design limit, a Japanese investigator said Friday.
An All Nippon Airways flight made an emergency landing Wednesday morning in western Japan after a cockpit message showed battery problems.
Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner had a nightmare of a week, capped off Friday by the Federal Aviation Administration’s decision to review everything about the new airplane, including its entire design and manufacturing process.
Federal regulators are ordering a comprehensive review of the critical systems of Boeing’s 787s after a fire and a fuel leak earlier this week at Logan Airport.
