NEW DELHI Boeing Co (BA.N) will complete fixing the batteries in all 50 of its high-tech 787 Dreamliner jets by the end of this month, Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president for sales in Asia Pacific, told Reuters on Wednesday.

State-run Air India Ltd resumed flying its Dreamliner passenger jets from Wednesday.
