Grounded

A line of 787 jets are parked Thursday at Boeing's Paine Field in Everett, Wash. Boeing's newest, flashiest jet was grounded worldwide until a fix for its battery problem is found that satisfies the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. It's not clear how long the investigation - or the fix - will take, but it won't be cheap for Boeing. Boeing currently builds five 787s every month. It hasn't delivered any since Jan. 3, before the first battery fire.
