Another Dreamliner delay for Air India

A Dreamliner scheduled for delivery to Air India Ltd is stuck in the US over a snag, adding to the litany of faults associated with Boeing Co.’s 787s, planes built with cutting-edge technology that were grounded for five months earlier this year after battery fires.

The Dreamliner, Air India’s eighth, had been scheduled to arrive in India on Wednesday. The plane with the registration VT-ANN was to have left the US on Tuesday.
