FAA Documentation Concerns Halt Boeing 787 Deliveries

Boeing 787 Dreamliner deliveries have been paused since late January so the company can address FAA concerns.

Boeing has halted deliveries of its 787 Dreamliner aircraft to address Federal Aviation Administration concerns about the aircraft. 

Dreamliners that are already in service have not been grounded, and the company said it is continuing to manufacture new 787s while the immediate safety concerns are being addressed.

Boeing said it “discovered an analysis error by our supplier related to the 787 forward pressure bulkhead. We notified the FAA and have paused 787 deliveries while we complete the required analysis and documentation,” Reuters reported

Delivery of the 787 Dreamliner aircraft was previously halted from the second quarter of 2021 to August 2022, due to concerns raised by FAA about flaws revealed in safety inspections. 

According to The Wall Street Journal, the current halt began on January 26. The current issue is unrelated to the 2021-2022 safety concerns, according to Reuters.
