United Airlines(NEW YORK) — United Airlines is removing the Boeing 787 from its planned schedule for the time being.

After issues on a number of the so-called Dreamliners, United says that their 787s will remain on the ground for now.

United was planning to launch a new route, from Denver to Tokyo’s Narita airport, with the 787 on March 31. That date has been delayed until at least May 12. As of now, the 787 will not fly any other routes until at least June 5.

United’s 787s could still take off before those dates, provided a solution to the Dreamliners’ problems is found and implemented.
