Japan Airlines and LOT Polish Airlines are poised to become the latest airlines to resume Dreamliner flights.

Both carriers are scheduled to restart 787 flights on Saturday (June 1) – following on from ANA which resumed Dreamliner services earlier this week. All 50 aircraft were grounded for more than three months while Boeing fixed a problem with onboard batteries catching fire.

Ethiopian Airlines was the first to restart Dreamliner services on April 27, with Qatar Airways resuming 787 services on the Heathrow-Doha route on May 15.

Air India is also now operating a daily Dreamliner flight from Delhi to Heathrow while United is to due to start using the aircraft on its Houston-Heathrow service from June 10 and Ethiopian will be operating the 787 on Addis Ababa-Heathrow from June 16.

Tour operator Thomson will be the first UK-based airline to receive the Dreamliner which it will begin using from July on long-haul leisure routes from Gatwick, Manchester, East Midlands and Glasgow.

British Airways is also scheduled to take delivery of its first Dreamliner in the next few weeks, although it has not announced which routes it will use the aircraft on.
