Dreamliner returns to service Saturday in Boston

The Dreamliner will soar above Boston on Saturday for the first time since the Boeing 787 fleet was grounded Jan. 16 because of multiple battery malfunctions, including­ a fire on an empty Japan Airlines plane parked at Logan International Airport.

Saturday’s flight, scheduled to touch down from Tokyo at 11:05 a.m. and leave Logan at 1 p.m., marks the resumption of Japan Airlines’ daily 787 service on the route, which had been reduced to four days a week on a larger 777 while the battery problem was fixed.
