    Boeing 787 Gets FAA Approval for Ferry Flight Today

    Boeing Co.’s grounded 787 Dreamliner will fly today for the first time in three weeks after U.S. officials approved a one-time permit to ferry a plane to Washington state from Texas.

    The trip isn’t a commercial flight, and the only people aboard will be those needed for operation, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement. The plane must fly directly to Boeing’s widebody-jet plant in Everett, just north of Seattle, from Fort Worth, where it was being painted for China Southern Airlines.

    Investigators are still “weeks away” from determining what caused battery failures on the 787, the head of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board said yesterday. The jets have been grounded since Jan. 16 after a fire on one and an emergency landing by another, and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood declined to give a timetable yesterday for deciding on Boeing’s request to resume test flights.

    “There is an increasing concern that this could take longer than earlier anticipated,” said Michel Merluzeau, a consultant with G2 Solutions in Kirkland, Washington.
