Ethiopian Airlines readies grounded 787 for flight

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia -- The chief executive of Ethiopian Airlines says it is seeking approval from America's Federal Aviation Administration and from Boeing to put its grounded Boeing 787s back into service.
Ethiopian Airlines chief executive officer Tewolde Gebremariam told The Associated Press that the company expects FAA approval within a few days.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliners have been grounded since January because of a risk of fire from the plane's lithium batteries.
United Airlines earlier this month put its grounded Boeing 787s back in its flight schedule. United has a 787 scheduled to fly starting May 31.
Boeing Co. has proposed a fix for the 787's batteries, but it needs approval from the FAA.
