Airlines advised to check for Dreamliner wing cracksPosted: March 10, 2014
The US aircraft manufacturer said the issue may affect nearly 40 planes and there may be “some delays in deliveries”.
However, Boeing added that it was confident “the issue does not exist in the in-service fleet,” the BBC reported.
“The affected areas are very small and the time required to address the issue will vary between one and two weeks,” the company said.
“There may be some delays in deliveries, but we expect no impact to 2014 delivery guidance.”
Thomson Airways and British Airways are current UK operators of the 787, soon to be followed by Virgin Atlantic.
