787 Returns to Japanese Skies, but It's Only a Start

After a smooth test flight to test troublesome batteries, Boeing and ANA must now turn to a more delicate task ? selling passengers on the idea that the Dreamliner is safe.

 

NTSB looks for cause, larger lessons in Boeing 787 battery fire

The top U.S. transportation safety regulator is looking beyond what caused a Boeing Co Dreamliner battery to fail in January at larger lessons that can be applied to the airplane certification process and new technologies.

 

Dreamliner set to fly in a week as Boeing fixes battery

Boeing began installing reinforced lithium-ion battery systems on five 787 jets in Japan on Monday, starting a process that should make the first commercial Dreamliners ready to fly again in about a week. Boeing's Dreamliners have been grounded since regulators ordered all 50 planes out of the skies in mid-January after batteries on two of them overheated. U.S. regulators approved a new battery design on Friday, clearing the way for installation. The grounding has cost Boeing an estimated $600 million, halted deliveries and forced some airlines to lease alternative aircraft. Several airlines have said they will seek compensation from Boeing, potentially adding to the plane maker's losses. Investors expect to learn more about the costs when Boeing reports second-quarter earnings on Wednesday.
