After grounding for battery problems, United flew 787 from Houston to Chicago
Signaling confidence to the flying public that Boeing 787s are safe to fly, the CEOs of Boeing Co. and United Continental Holdings on Monday traveled from Houston to Chicago aboard a Dreamliner.
Monday's flight, which touched down at 1:14 p.m., early and without incident, marked the return to service of United-owned Dreamliners after the Boeing plane model was grounded for 100 days by aviation regulators worldwide because of overheating onboard batteries.
