Regulators are considering Boeing's (BA) request for flight tests of its 787 Dreamliner within the next few days, as company and government investigators seek new ways to ferret out what caused the lithium-ion batteries to catch fire and ground the world-wide Dreamliner fleet. Although the potential green light for testing would be the first flight for the troubled bird in weeks, it won't affect the current status of passenger flights, which remain grounded.
