The FAA notes that while the AD applies to 787s, the presence of the Honeywell device on other models means “continuing investigation is required,” which could lead to additional directives. Honeywell has produced about 6,000 of the ELTs in question.

AAIB notes that the Ethiopian Airlines incident “has been the only significant thermal event.” Nevertheless, based on initial findings AAIB recommended that FAA review lithium-powered ELT systems on all aircraft and, if necessary, take action.
