Ethiopian 787 Returns To The Air

An Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787 has made its first flight since suffering structural damage in a fire at London’s Heathrow Airport in July.

Boeing test pilots took ET-AOP on a test flight from Heathrow on December 21, flying racetrack patterns over the North Sea at 39,000 ft. The aircraft was due to land at Manston Airport in the afternoon and then return to Heathrow later in the day. It is not clear whether more flights will be required, but Boeing is hopeful of returning the aircraft to passenger operations in the coming weeks.

Hopefully, Ethiopian will be compensated for revenue lost during the grounding of the Aircraft since July.

Does anybody know whether other airlines grounded their 787 as a precaution? If the fire has started because of defective parts of the plane, Boing is liable for lost revenue and has to compensate every airline that lost 6 month revenue.
