- +

Boeing has proposed a fix for battery problems on the 787 Dreamliner but the aircraft will stay grounded worldwide until a safe solution is determined, US air safety regulators said Friday. 

The damaged battery case from a fire aboard a Japan Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplane is displayed inside an investigation lab at National Transportation Safety Board Headquarters in Washington, DC, on January 24, 2013. US air-safety regulators said they were reviewing a Boeing proposal to fix battery problems on the 787 Dreamliner that have kept the aircraft grounded worldwide.

"The FAA is reviewing a Boeing proposal and will analyze it closely," the Federal Aviation Administration said after meeting with senior Boeing executives to discuss the ongoing investigation of the battery issues.
