WASHINGTON, D.C. – Dreamliners are taking a rest. The Federal Aviation Administration has ordered all U.S. airlines to stop flying the Boeings until some technical difficulties are resolved.

Only united is effected domestically.

There have been a handful of issues with the planes, including two battery incidents in two weeks.

One 787 had to make an emergency landing in Japan, after an alarm went off and smoke billowed in a forward compartment, and before that, a battery actually caught fire in Boston.

Boeing insists their planes are safe and that they are “taking every necessary step … to assure  … safety….”

Still, pretty much every airline in the world has parked the planes, at least for now.
