Boeing has reported that inspections related to previously disclosed production defects on its 787 Dreamliner found the same issue in other parts of the aircraft.

In August, the company revealed that it identified manufacturing issues on eight 787 long-range airliners.

According to Boeing, the manufacturing defects indicated that the aircraft didn’t meet design standards, reported The Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

However, the problem doesn’t pose an imminent safety hazard, noted the company.

Boeing spokesperson was quoted by the publication as saying: “These findings are part of Boeing’s review of assembled 787 aircraft to ensure each meets our highest quality standards prior to delivery to customers.”

Meanwhile, the company’s briefings showed that it failed to secure new airliner orders for the second consecutive month in October.

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) also initiated an investigation on the manufacturing flaws involving several Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

The FAA told Reuters that it ‘continuously engages with Boeing through established Continued Operational Safety and manufacturing oversight processes to appropriately address any issues that might arise’.

These 787 production flaws are said to affect the company’s delivery timelines, resulting in delays and adding to its financial struggles.

The development follows after the company received final approval from the FAA for the modified 737 MAX aircraft in the Federal Register.

The Boeing 737 MAX has been temporarily grounded since March 2019, following two fatal crashes Indonesia and Ethiopia that killed 346 people.
