  1. I would expect that QF will keep the A-380 grounded until parts arrive and are placed in the engines, that could take a few weeks to a month.

    I would also expect ZA-002 to be grounded for a while, but it may be approved to fly back to Boeing Field on a one time flight. The other B-787 test aircraft may be flying again as early as next week.
