Holiday airline Thomson has abandoned plans to operate Boeing's troubled new Dreamliner plane from May.
The aircraft, the Boeing 787, has been having operational difficulties in recent weeks. Thomson had been hoping to start flying the new quiet, fuel-efficient plane in a couple of months.
A lot of the engineering for the plane was done in the south and it was initially expected to fly for the first time in the UK from Gatwick Airport.
