All Nippon tests first 787 with reinforced batteries

Japan's All Nippon Airways (ANA), the Japanese launch customer for Boeing Co's 787, has test flown its first Dreamliner in more than three months to test reinforced batteries installed by the US aircraft maker, Reuters has reported. The ANA flight was the second by an airline since aviation regulators on Friday gave permission for 787 operations to restart after batteries on two of them overheated in mid-January. Ethiopian Airlines on Saturday became the world's first carrier to resume flying Dreamliner passenger jets since the global fleet was grounded three months ago, carrying passengers to neighbouring Kenya from Ethiopia.
