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.
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.
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.
A Japan Airlines jet leaked fuel at Logan Airport Tuesday, a day after a similar plane from the same airline caught fire at the airport.
Firefighters were called to Logan Airport Monday morning after smoke was reported in a parked Japan Airlines plane.
The first non-stop service between Boston and Tokyo is an initial success.
Logan is the first airport in North America to schedule regular flights to the Far East aboard the 787 Dreamliner.
Travelers heading to Japan from Boston will be able to make the flight without touching down along the way for the first time in history.
The Massachusetts Port Authority is launching its biggest marketing effort ever to support the launch of new non-stop service from Boston to Tokyo on April 22.
The big winner in the start of non-stop service on Japan Airlines from Boston to Tokyo next year may be American Airlines.
