Boeing has asked airlines to inspect up to 1,200 aircraft across its fleet to gather data on Honeywell emergency beacons that have come under scrutiny following a fire on a parked 787 Dreamliner two weeks ago. The blaze caused serious damage to the jet owned by Ethiopian Airlines at London's Heathrow on July 12.
