Boeing makes first 787 Dreamliner delivery since May 2021

American Airlines said Wednesday that it has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner since April 2021, a milestone for the planemaker.

American Airlines Chief Executive Robert Isom confirmed the delivery in a post on Instagram, saying, “This is the first of nine 787s we expect to receive this year.”

Reuters reported on Monday that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had cleared the way for delivery of the first plane after Boeing halted deliveries in May 2021 over concerns raised by the regulator over its proposed inspection method.

In September 2020, the FAA said it was investigating manufacturing defects in some 787 aircraft.
