Boeing has reportedly developed a plan that it intends to propose to federal regulators to temporarily fix problems with the 787 Dreamliner's batteries that have kept the planes on the ground for more than a month. It is anticipated that Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Ray Conner will present the plan to Michael Huerta, head of the Federal Aviation Administration, in a meeting on Friday. Boeing has narrowed down the ways the lithium-ion batteries on the jetliners could fail, and believes that adding insulation between the cells of the batteries, and making other changes, would ensure their safe use. Michael Huerta is not expected to approve the changes immediately, but the meeting with Boeing is likely to start a discussion on the standards Boeing needs to meet as it tests the fixes and seeks to get the planes flying again.
