Battery problems grounded the aircraft earlier this year. In fact, the 787 Dreamliner had several battery-related fires.
With a redesigned battery system, the plane is set to resume operations this week. Monday’s flight from Bush IAH airport will be the first time Dreamliner will fly with passengers since its grounding.
