NEW YORK - The European planemaker Airbus is dropping lithium-ion batteries from its new A350 airplane because of uncertainty surrounding the technology that has led to the grounding of Boeing's 787.

The battery problem caused one fire and forced another plane to make an emergency landing.

The A350 plane is rival to the 787 and is expected to make its first flight around the middle of the year.
