Ethiopian Airlines Latest to Suspend Dreamliner Service

Ethiopian Airlines says it has temporarily pulled its Boeing 787 Dreamliners out of service for precautionary inspection on Thursday, January 17, 2013.

Even though the Ethiopian Dreamliners have not encountered any type of problems such as those experienced by other operators, the halt was due to a directive of the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandating operators to “perform special inspection requirements on the Dreamliner airplane battery system in accordance with a method approved by it.”
