Boeing on Friday confirmed that a United Airlines 787 Dreamliner flying from Washington, D.C. to Paris, France last month experienced a problem with an onboard lithium-ion battery.
The Chicago-based jet maker said it wasn’t a “safety of flight issue” or a repeat of the battery problems that grounded Dreamliners four years ago and triggered a federal safety probe.
Boeing spokesman Paul Bergman described the Nov. 13 incident as “a fault with a single cell in the plane’s main battery.”
