Boeing halts Dreamliner deliveries

Help

Boeing has said it will continue production of its 787 Dreamliner, but has suspended deliveries of any further aircraft until a battery problem is resolved.

All 50 Dreamliners in service around the world have been grounded while safety tests are carried out, following the emergency landing of a Japanese airliner because of a fault.

The US Federal Aviation Administration has joined the investigation into the faults, with a spokesperson saying the 787 would not fly until authorities were "1,000% sure" it was safe.
