The US aircraft manufacturer Boeing has had to suspend deliveries of its important long-haul jet 787 “Dreamliner” again.
This was announced by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) yesterday, confirming a report by the Wall Street Journal. The reason is additional examinations of a component of the aircraft fuselage. Deliveries will not continue until the FAA is satisfied that the problem has been resolved satisfactorily, the agency said.
A statement from Boeing was initially not available. Investors reacted nervously and initially let the shares of the Airbus rival fall by almost three percent in after-hours US trading.
The "Dreamliner" has repeatedly caused problems in recent years. Due to various production defects, the aircraft was not allowed to be handed over to customers from May 2021 to August 2022. When it was last re-registered, the FAA announced that it would in future check each 787 individually before certifying its airworthiness.
