Renting Airbus because of gaps in their planned expansion based on 787 availability.

Boeing's customers are leaving.

Poor ....senile ....liar...

He said leasing rates for planes like the Boeing 767 and the Airbus A330 “have remained strong and strengthened slightly.”

Boeing is maing no profit off the 787.

They keep producing the 787 without being able to fly it.

They have a band aid fix for the battery issue. Japan is on the record saying they arn't heppy with the battery solution, and they made the battery. The 787 is far from a production plane, maybe the FAA would allow it to fly cargo??

"Boeing is maing..."

They made no profit during development either. It's called design, building, and flight testing bugs. The orders are still flying in and the FAA approved the changes...

A Boeing plan to redesign the 787 Dreamliner's fire-plagued lithium-ion batteries won approval Tuesday from the Federal Aviation Administration, although officials gave no estimate for when the planes would be allowed to fly passengers again.

The plan includes changes to the internal battery components to minimize the possibility of short-circuiting, which can lead to overheating and cause a fire. Among the changes are better insulation of the battery's eight cells and the addition of a new containment and venting system, the FAA said in a statement.

A series of tests, including flight tests, must be passed before the 787 can return to service. So far, flight tests of two 787s with prototypes of the new battery design have been approved, the agency said.

MAYBE the FAA will allow it to fly cargo??

Japan made the battery and they don't like the Boeing bandaid fix by Boeing.

Nice premise.

That's like saying because my car has a spare tire it's designed to get flats.

Just add it to the list of things Ralph is afraid of I suppose.

If you are going to steal an intelligent person's name, at least spell it correctly.

The 787 has no spare battery.

After flying for a short time 2 787s has fires in the lithium batteries. The fire in Boston took 80 mins to put out and a firefighter was injured. A release knob burned off the battery box and it was leaking electrolite that burns.

The "fix" by Boeing is to insulate, separate the cells and use a heavey duty battery box. Also they are installing a vent stack in hopes to remove smoke from a burning battery.

One of average intell would understand the fix is to vent smoke from an anticipated fire.

Can't you just see in a flight 3 hours out over an ocean the pilot gets on the PA: "Ladies and gentelmen this is your pilot, if you smell some smoke don't be concerned. We have indications one of the battery packs has malfunctioned. We are decending just in case it develops into a serious problem. Flight attendents please instruct everyone on how to use flotation devices. Thanks for flying United and we hope you can fly with us again."

Morons making up stories WAY above your "intelligence"...

Boeing Co got approval from U.S. transport regulators on Tuesday to start testing a redesigned battery for the 787 Dreamliner, putting it one step closer to getting the troubled airplane back into regular service.

Also on Tuesday, sources told Reuters the planemaker was close to signing a $15 billion deal to sell about 170 single-aisle 737 planes to budget Irish carrier Ryanair.

Boeing's shares closed up 1.5 percent, hitting an almost five-year high, and extended gains in after-hours trade.

Designed to BURN!!!!!:::::

Boeing's new battery - which it presented to the FAA in late February - is designed to minimize the chances of a short circuit, better insulates the cells within the battery, and adds a new containment and venting system to prevent damage even if the battery catches fire.

The FAA said the new design must pass a series of tests before it is approved and that the agency will be "closely involved" in the certification process. The FAA has been criticized for delegating too much responsibility to manufacturers in certifying equipment.

The FAA's decision was welcomed by Boeing, while Kyoto-based GS Yuasa declined to comment.

Can't believe what I'm reading.

Boeing with support of FAA etc is designing a new battery pack that is designed to burn in flight. Any fire will be vented so as to not smokefill the cabin. BUT the "fix" will include mechanisums that will allow the plane to burn but make it to an airport while burning.

I'll be passing on flying the NEW ENHANCED 787, thanks anyway..
