Boeing halts 787 Dreamliner deliveries again after FAA presses for details on fixes

Boeing said Friday it has once again temporarily halted deliveries of its 787 Dreamliner wide body jets after resuming handovers in late March as it works to appease Federal Aviation Administration safety concerns.

The federal aviation regulator said the Chicago-based jet maker had yet to share data showing and confirming that its proposed inspection methods to check all Dreamliners before delivery "would meet FAA's safety regulations."

The FAA said it has requested additional information and data from Boeing that shows all inspections and fixes the company proposed and adopted before resuming the passenger jet deliveries paused for five months before the restart were effective and met all federal aviation regulations.

"We asked for data to support that the inspections are meeting FAA regulations, and they couldn't give it to us," an FAA spokeswoman said.
