American Airlines announced on Wednesday it has received the carrier's first Boeing 787 Dreamliner plane since April last year, marking a significant milestone for the American planemaker.

"This is an exciting day for American Airlines as we took delivery of our first Boeing 787-8 since April 2021. The 787 is an important part of America's fleet, and this is the first of nine 787s we expect to receive this year. A big thank you to the American Airlines team who worked to make today a reality and to our colleagues at the FAA and Boeing for their work during the review process," Chief Executive Robert Isom said in an Instagram post.

The United States Federal Aviation Administration greenlighted Boeing's plans to start deliveries earlier this week after the suspension in May 2021, which came amid the FAA's concerns about Boeing's inspection methods as well as manufacturing flaws in some jetliners.
