UNDATED (AP) - Air India says Indian regulators have ordered it to stop flying Boeing 787 aircraft.


That follows the issuance of an emergency safety order by U.S. aviation officials on Wednesday that temporarily grounds 787 Dreamliners flown by U.S. carriers until the risk of possible battery fires is addressed. Two Japanese airlines have also voluntarily grounded their fleet of 787s.
