The F.A.A. has acted in the wake of yesterday’s emergency landing by an ANA Dreamliner in Japan, and grounded all U.S.-registered 787 aircraft. The no-fly edict, which supersedes last week’s review, following the Boston undercarriage fire, will remain in place until Boeing can guarantee the safety of the plane’s Lithium-Ion batteries. The F.A.A.’s move is a blow for Boeing, whose share price closed 3% lower on Wall Street yesterday.
