New delhi: Air India plans to upgrade the software in all its 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets from December, saying that the process will not lead to the planes being grounded for long.
The 787 has suffered a series of glitches since it was introduced two years ago. Boeing and Air India have previously said the recent incidents with Air India Dreamliners did not pose a safety risk to passengers.
An Air India spokesman in New Delhi said there was “no problem” with their Dreamliner jets and that the software upgrade was a routine process.
The carrier will not ground aircraft specifically for upgrading the software as that will hit operations, he said.
Boeing said in a statement it would begin in December “the incorporation of service bulletins to enhance the in-service performance of Air India’s 787 fleet”. reuters
