FAA Orders U.S. Carriers to Temporarily Stop Flying Boeing 787 Dreamliners
The Federal Aviation Administration ordered carriers flying U.S.-registered Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft to temporarily halt using the plane until they can demonstrate the onboard batteries are safe. The move comes after a battery issue caused an emergency landing earlier Wednesday in Japan. United Airlines is the only U.S. airline operating the plane, with six in service, the FAA said. Boeing shares fell slightly in late trading.
