Boeing 787 Breaking News: CEO: Ethiopian Airways to Go on Flying 787 Fleet

Wochit 1:16 mins

The chief executive of Ethiopian Airlines says his company is continuing to operate its fleet of Boeing 787 despite an investigation into a fire on one of its empty Dreamliners parked at London's Heathrow Airport. Tewolde Gebremariam told The Associated Press Saturday that there is "no flight safety issue" with the 787s and that Ethiopian Airlines, like other operators, has not made changes regarding the planes. Polish flag carrier LOT said it would continue to operate its four Boeing 787 Dreamliners after a Dreamliner operated by Ethiopian Airlines caught fire at Britain's Heathrow. Thomson Airways says one of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes travelling from England to the U.S. had to turn back after experiencing a technical issue. The incident is the second to involve one of Boeing Co.'s troubled planes on the same day. Earlier, Heathrow Airport temporarily shut down its runways due to a fire on an empty 787.
