ANA has extended the cancellations of its 787 flights to May 31, with the total number of flights affected at nearly 3,600, involving some 167,820 passengers. JAL has cancelled its 787 flights through Mar. 30.
Thanks for the info.

Of course ALL US flights are grounded by the FAA.

Except test flights may be FAA authorized over uninhabited areas during daylight with NO passengers allowed. Of course the Seattle pimp calls this "Flying", he knows not how his ignorance clearly shows.

FAA disputes reports that Boeing 787 test flights near
Reuters Tue, Feb 26, 2013...

SEATTLE (Reuters)- The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said it is not close to approving test flights of Boeing (NYSE: BA - news)'s 787 Dreamliner with a proposed fix for the plane's troubled batteries, denying news reports that such tests could start as early as next week.

"Reports that we are close to allowing 787 test flights are completely inaccurate," spokeswoman Laura Brown said on Tuesday in an email to Reuters. Boeing declined to comment.

Batteries overheated on two jets last month, prompting regulators to ground the 50 Dreamliners in service worldwide. The grounding saddled Boeing Co with mounting costs and airlines with expensive planes that cannot be flown and in some cases are stranded far from their home airports.

Boeing proposed a multi-faceted fix for the battery system in a meeting with the FAA last week. The proposal included a stronger containment box, a battery with greater cooling capacity and other changes.

The proposed fix came before the cause of the burnt batteries is known. The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating what caused one of the batteries to catch fire on a plane on the ground in Boston. A second smouldered on a flight in Japan, prompting an emergency landing and evacuation. The Japan Transportation Safety Board is investigating that incident. Boeing has recently dispatched a new group of experts to Japan to work with battery maker GS Yuasa Corp on fixes to the battery, according to a person briefed on the matter.

The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed sources, reported that Boeing initially asked the FAA for flight tests to begin on Friday and told customers that if testing began in early March, the 787 might be allowed to resume operations with passengers by the end of the month.

But the FAA appears to have a different timetable.

In a notice issued last Friday, the agency alerted airlines operating the 787-8, the current production model, that they have until April 8 to submit comments on the decision to ground the aircraft because of unsafe conditions caused by the battery system. The agency said that in grounding the 787 on January 16, due to safety concerns after the two battery incidents, it did not provide time for public comment.

I said, "The battery rework will take a month or less."

By your "logic", I'll take the month bet, from the day I said it would take a month....

"The battery rework will take a month or less."

My month could have started 2/3/13, but the new month starts today 2/28/13. Are you accepting the 50k wager ???

COME ON MOUTH !!! LMAOROTFU~!

Adding nonsense to a wager you cannot afford is really petty/childish, why don't you GFY !!!

Of course, you never mention your 6 months to a year, right LOSER !!!!

Test flights mean nothing.

Any changes will require FAA recertification and will take months. United canning the plane until June 2013, MONTHS AWAY.

Too bad I was looking forward to flying on a 787, I fly on average once a week.

You're right, the test flight have nothing to do with my battery rework comment. Since Boeing already submitted it to the FAA... I would have won the wager, if you'd have had a man willing to stand behind their blather.

Technically, the battery rework isn't completed until the FAA says it is and lets the planes fly. If it was all said and done, the planes would be in the air right now. If the FAA makes Boeing use a different battery type? Configuration? What then? Some company representing the battery rework is done is not the same as the FAA saying it is done.

Pretend by Boeing saying the rework is complete the planes will be allowed to fly. It is like calibrating something. We say we are calibrating a scale when we put a weight on it and check the readout vs. the standardized weight. Really, that is checking the calibration, calibrating would be the actual act of adjusting the scale. So while you say the battery work was complete, it cannot be complete until the FAA Ok's it.

It cannot be "CERTIFIED", it's complete as far as the design fix NOW ~!!

In fact, they've completed the work on a flight test plane and it's flown 2x.

Too bad, you're a moron.

It will be many months if not a year before the 787 flys passengers again.

Meanwhile Boeing is bleeding out of cash with losses exceeding $600,000,000 to date.

They would be money ahead if they purchased a share in Airbus and started making those planes instead of the 787 at least they fly without burning up.

Boeing BandAid solution to the battery issue.

Japan isn't bought in to the band aid solution.

I'll NOT be flying 787 until they reengineer the battery systems with other than lithium ion batteries. NO band aid solutions on my planes.

Frequent flyers can choose the hardware they fly on, I'll fly AirBus.
