Federal regulators have grounded all Dreamliners just five days after Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood called them “safe” and said he had “absolutely no reservations” about their safety.

The Federal Aviation Administration had started a top-down review of Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner after a fire broke out in a Japan Airlines Co. On Tuesday, Japan announced it would ground all the aircraft. Initially, the flights were to continue in the states.

Then that changed, amid FAA concerns.

Here’s what outgoing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said just a few days ago.

“I believe this plane is safe and I would have absolutely no reservations of boarding one of these planes and taking a flight,” Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said at the press conference.
