Poor troll, if I had your "life", I'd be as unhappy as you are. Keep it up, when you pay for it, the cost will be perfect justice.

I'll NOT be flying 787 until they reengineer the battery systems with other than lithium ion batteries. NO band aid solutions on my planes.
Frequent flyers can choose the hardware they fly on, I'll fly AirBus.
Ps re-engineer ???

Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Ray Conner told reporters after meeting Japan's Transport Minister Akihiro Ota the proposed solution was a long-term plan, not an interim fix.

Looks like they've beaten my deadline for the battery rework... Sorry kids, better "luck" next time.

Not to worry, the Boeing exec in charge is an old 3M exec. The guy was NOT respected at 3M at all.

The 787 is FAR from flying.

You want to fly across the Atlantic in a 787 with a battery box that might burn?

Will the FAA approve a plane with batteries that might burn up and the event MIGHT be contained and vented when it burns?

The 787 may get a nick name, "BurnLiner".

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody

I blew in town 40 years ago, I ain't seen a lotta girls since then
If I could find'em I could get'em but as yet I have'nt met'em
That's why I'm in the shape I'm in ohhhh

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
Another fella told me he had a sister that looked so fine
Instead of being my deliverance, she had a strong resemblance
To a cat named Frankenstein ohhhh....

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody
I got no money cuz I got no job
How I wish I had someone to talk to
I'm in awful mess
It's hard for a fella, when he don't know his way around
If I can't find me a honey to help me spend her money
I'm gonna have to blow this town ohhh....

Failure of the FAA.

FAA supervises everything on airplane builds.

Why didn't they see the battery problem?

Still grounded.

Public hearings will be held to discuss the use of lithium ion batteries.

The 787 is FAR from being ready to fly passengers again.

MAYBE it will be approved to fly cargo only, who cares if one burns up with a bunch of bannans?

Of course they would need to have ejection seats for the crew, we don't want the crew to perish.

Boeing, another Chicago Company. What would be expected?

If you are inclined to be informed about the 787 read this:

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/boei...

Media is staying on top of the 787 and all ya need to do is google "787" for the latest.

The battery fire was impossible to stop using all available fire fighting options ON THE GROUND. Only after 80 mins of firefighting the battery was able to be removed from the plane.

Can you imagine being 3 hours out over the Atlantic and having a battery start burning?

There would be NO WAY to stop the fire. It might expand to cargo etc and the plane might need to be ditched at sea 3 hours from help.

Boeing MUST get this RIGHT!!!

Even if they are able to band aid a fix to the plane there WILL BE additional battery fires. If another 787 has a fire that might mean the end of the 787 no matter if anyone is hurt or not.

Hey is the 787 flying today?

NOPE!!

Public hearings to occur in April on the 787 battery issue.

787 customers are switching to AirBus. At what point does Boeing hit the ejection seat on the entire product?
