The chief executive of Ethiopian Airlines said Tuesday that his company will seek compensation from Boeing for the grounding of its 787 Dreamliner planes. Tewolde Gebremariam said his company will soon start discussions with Boeing over the matter.

A Boeing spokesman, Daniel Mosely, said the company has been in close communication with its customers regarding compensation since January, when Dreamliners around the world were grounded. Mosely said details of the conversations are confidential.

Ethiopian Airlines began flying the 787s again last month after the problem was fixed.

The 50 Dreamliner jets in service worldwide were grounded because incidents with smoldering batteries occurred aboard two planes, leading to hundreds of canceled flights and revenue losses.
