Ethiopian Airlines is set to resume Boeing 787 Dreamliner service on the Addis-Harare-Lusaka route starting May 16, 2013. Boeing 787s have been grounded since regulators ordered all 50 planes out of the skies in mid-January after batteries on two of them overheated. US regulators approved a new battery design on Friday 19th April, clearing the way for installation.
