Boeing delivers first 787 Dreamliner since multi-week hiatus in February

Boeing (NYSE:BA) delivered a 787 Dreamliner to German airline Lufthansa (ETR) on, the first since the Federal Aviation Administration suspended deliveries in late February.

A Boeing spokesman confirmed the delivery to Reuters.

The FAA halted deliveries of the 787 on Feb. 23 due to a data analysis error related to the plane’s front pressure bulkhead, which the company detected after reviewing certification records.

The FAA said Boeing had resolved those problems and on March 10 approved it to begin delivering 787s later this week.

The plane took off from Paine Field, north of Seattle, on Wednesday afternoon and landed in Frankfurt at 08:52 a.m. local time, flight data show.
