(AP) United Airlines is taking the troubled Boeing 787 out of its flying plans for the rest of this month.


United says it has replaced its six 787s with other planes. U.S. regulators grounded the 787s last month after two battery incidents.


United Continental Holdings Inc. spokeswoman Megan McCarthy says the plane swaps include new flights from Houston to Lagos, Nigeria, which were supposed to switch to a 787 in late January. She says United still plans to start new flights from Denver to Tokyo's Narita airport on March 31.


Japan's All Nippon Airways on Wednesday canceled its 787 flying through March 30.


Federal officials say it could be weeks before they know what caused a 787 battery fire last month.
