Boeing halts 787 deliveries until batteries fixed

Boeing Co. says it will stop delivering new 787s to customers until its electrical system is fixed.

Boeing says production is not stopping. The plane is assembled in Everett, Wash., and North Charleston, S.C.

The Federal Aviation Administration has grounded the 787s until Boeing can prove the batteries are safe. A statement from Boeing says it will stop deliveries until the FAA approves a solution. It says it will also wait until the fix has been carried out.
