Boeing starts 787 mods.

Here are the locations of the grounded 787 that are in service with the 8 carriers thus far.

Today 5 (morning time in Japan), Boeing started working on 5 787s belonging to ANA.  It's probably not a stretch to assume that there are modifications that are starting to be done on the other 787s around the world.  It does look like that Ethiopian will be the first to return to service as they are planning to restart service around April 25th.

Here are the current locations of the 50 in service 787s around the world:

Santiago, Chile - 3 - All LAN

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - 4 - All Ethiopian

Frankfurt, Germany - 1 - ANA

Mumbai, India - 6 - All Air India

Haneda, Japan - 11 - 10 ANA, 1 JAL

Kumamoto, Japan - 1 - ANA

Matsuyama, Japan - 1 - ANA

Narita, Japan - 8 - 1 UAL, 5 JAL, 2 ANA

Okayama, Japan - 1 - ANA

Takamatsu, Japan - 1 - ANA

Warsaw, Poland - 1 - LOT Polish Airlines

Doha, Qatar - 4 - All Qatar Airways

London, UK - 1 - Qatar Airways

Boston, USA - 1 - JAL

Chicago, USA - 1 - LOT Polish Airlines

Houston, USA - 4 - All UAL

Los Angeles, USA - 1 - UAL

Here's the list of carriers that have the 787 and when they will be returning to service (approximately):

ANA - early June (after completing test flights and pilot training)
Air India - around mid May
Ethiopian - April 25
JAL - early June (after completing test flights and pilot training)
LAN - unknown
LOT Polish Airlines - October but will probably restart earlier
Qatar Airways - end of April
United Airlines - May 31st but may be able to restart earlier

Perhaps we saw the Chinese birds with engines removed about two months ago was because they were swopping them for the new version GE's?
Just a guess...

About LOT, it's confirmed the Dreamliners will restart operations in the first days of June but in May they will fly to Ethiopia for modifications... -,boeingi,787,poleca,do,etiopii.php

Interesting comment in Brendan's article today claiming that ZA 431 did not have the complete battery fix for its flight yesterday but will have it before delivery...

good to see progress on the chart again after so long. it looks like you forgot to enter the first flight date for line 34 though.

The UA plane at LAX has been moved to Lackland Afb

Wonder if all the UA 787 will be fixed there?
