The 787 groundings continue, with ANA extending its grounding of the aircraft further.
Currently, the following airlines have grounded their fleets until at least the minimum dates:
- All Nippon Airlines – 31st May 2013
- Air India – 31st March 2013
- Ethiopian Airlines – 31st March 2013
- Japan Airlines – 31st March 2013
- LAN Chile – 31st March 2013
- LOT – October 2013 (all 787 removed from GDS’s according to AirlineRoutes)
- Qatar Airways – 31st March 2013
- United Airlines – 5th June 2013
These suspension dates are subject to Boeing deploying fixes to the 787 fleet that the Federal Aviation Administration deems as addressing the issues with the batteries that have plauged the Dreamliner.
The worldwide fleet of 50 aircraft remain grounded until the proposed fix that Boeing are looking at has been approved and deployed, with no new deliveries made since the grounding of the fleet on 16th January.
