Major global news services are reporting that two Japanese airlines have grounded all of their Boeing 787 jets. All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines made the announcements following an emergency landing Wednesday morning in Japan.
Federal regulators are pledging a full-scale review of the design and build of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. In a news conference, the Federal Aviation Administration said it will get to the root cause of a set of problems, including last week’s fire on a Dreamliner at Boston's Logan Airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration said this morning that the Boeing 787 will undergo a comprehensive design, manufacture and assembly review. The announcement follows two separate incidents with the so-called Dreamliners operated by Japan Airlines. The first was a fire in a battery pack of an auxiliary power unit and the second was a fuel leak.
