Boeing Repairs 787, Won’t Say How

Boeing has repaired the Ethiopian Airlines 787 Dreamliner that was severely damaged in a fire at Heathrow Airport and the jet is back in passenger service with the airline.

Boeing spokeswoman Kate Bergman said Wednesday that “the repair and refurbishment took approximately two months and has returned the airplane to full structural integrity, with no degradation to passenger safety or comfort.”

After some test flights in England, the airplane returned to passenger service just before Christmas.
