Recommendations on Boeing 787s Expected Next Week

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON - The head of the Federal Aviation Administration expects a recommendation from his staff next week on whether to accept Boeing's plan to fix its 787 Dreamliners.

FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said the agency is reviewing Boeing's proposal to revamp the 787's lithium ion batteries.

Huerta believes the proposal addresses several battery related issues that lead to two planes being grounded last month.

He declined to comment on when a final decision will be made.
