The FAA has authorized Boeing to resume delivery of its 787 Dreamliner aircraft after halting deliveries in February due to concerns over a potential fuselage issue.

During its review of certification records, Boeing identified an analysis error made by one of its suppliers regarding the pressurization bulkhead at the front of the aircraft.

As a result, on February 24, 2023, both Boeing and the FAA announced that deliveries were suspended while conducting a thorough analysis and updating related documentation.

Boeing has stated that there is no immediate danger to the 787s currently in service and that the latest issue detected should not require any additional modifications beyond those already planned for the aircraft.

In a statement on March 10, 2023, the regulator confirmed that Boeing had addressed the FAA’s concerns and that the agency may resume issuing airworthiness certificates for the Dreamliner.
