FAA won't issue emergency directive on Boeing jets, GE engines
WASHINGTON, Sept 19 |
WASHINGTON, Sept 19 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said Wednesday it would stop short of issuing an emergency directive on recently identified problems in General Electric engines on a pair of Boeing Co jet models, sticking instead to more routine safety notices.
An emergency directive could have meant temporary groundings of the GE-powered Boeing 787 and 747-8 jets, for instance, or other significant limits on fleet operations that now may be less likely.
