Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes are flying again

Boeing has carried out modification work and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes, seen as quiet and fuel-efficient, are flying again.

Thomson said that it was contacting customers due to travel on the Dreamliner between July 1 and 7 to tell them they would be travelling on Boeing 767 aircraft instead.

Following modification work, Boeing has now been given the go-ahead to operate the plane which was already years late going into service due to production difficulties.

Thomson, which is due to receive eight Dreamliners, is the UK launch customer for the plane and before the grounding had been busy promoting trips on the 787 which can seat between 210 and 290 passengers on medium-range routes.
