India "concerned" about Boeing Dreamliner glitches

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India is “concerned” about the recent glitches in Boeing Co’s (BA.N) 787 Dreamliner jets and is awaiting a safety report by the National Transportation Safety Board, a senior government official said on Friday.

    The Dreamliner jet had three technical mishaps in as many days this month, including an electrical fire that caused severe damage to a plane. U.S. transportation authorities are launching a review of the Dreamliner, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

    State-controlled Air India has ordered 27 Dreamliners.
