FAA orders Boeing Dreamliner jets inspected for fuel leaks
December 5, 2012 (CHICAGO) -- The Federal Aviation Administration is ordering inspections of all 787 Dreamliner jets, the new jets made by Chicago-based Boeing.
This comes after fuel leaks in the plane were linked to a manufacturing flaw at Boeing plants.
The inspections will focus on fuel line connections in the engine pylons.
Right now United is the only U.S. operator that flies Dreamliners. It has three of them.
Thirty-three others are flown by foreign carriers.
