Only an idiot like you wouldn't understand the severity/complexity of the 787 failure. Unless they can fix the current design, not possible, they will need to do a redesign of the 2 battery packs and all associated control systems on the 787. Once they think they have a good design, for the second time, the new airplane must go through recertification and flight worthiness tests by the FAA.
All this rework may take 2+ years. Meanwhile the 787 assembly line may not be able to churn out new planes and AirBus may be able to ramp up and capture the entire market.
At that time Boeing will go broke.
TIME FLIES, HUH phd2 ???

In your informed opinion when will the 787 fly and carry passengers?
I have read a number of blogs and if a different battery technology is used wouldn't that require a complete redesign of management systems, storage, power delivery, etc? NOT a quick fix by any means.
Not quick, huh ?

You mean to tell us the 787 MIGHT HAVE PROBLEMS?

787 remains grounded. Clinton Admin expert says it will be months before it flys.

Some Boeing officials have said the 787 could be back in service by May 1. But some experts cautioned it could take longer.

Oliver McGee, an aerospace and mechanical engineer who was a deputy assistant secretary of transportation under President Bill Clinton, said he was skeptical that federal regulators would allow the 787 to resume flights as early as May 1.

"Take whatever date is agreed upon and add three to six months to it," McGee told Reuters. "I don't think that you're going to see any type of quick fix or compromising on the FAA side."

McGee said the trauma of the Columbia and Challenger shuttle disasters would make federal officials reluctant to sign off on the new battery system until they were absolutely sure it would work as Boeing promised.

Just how many paying passengers were on that flight, Slewche? How many of the 50 planes is service are flying revenue generating routes? Flying a test flight is not "flying" in the spirit of the discussion, but I wouldn't expect you to acknowledge that you are being duplicitous.

Hey, a 2 hour flight without a crash!!

And the fires didn't occur until after thousands of hours of flight. Soooo 2 hours of flight really gives one a lot of confidence that the 787 can fly without burning up. AND the "fix" includes a new stronger battery box that WILL NOT blow up. Joke, when a battery burns it will blow up whatever enclosure it's in. Plus the box has drain holes AND a vent tube. When flamable electrolyte drains out the drain holes or vent tube and ends up on the skin of the 787 what will happen?

Some Boeing officials have said the jet could be back in service by May 1, or earlier.

But Oliver McGee, an aerospace and mechanical engineer who was a deputy assistant secretary of transportation under President Bill Clinton, said he was skeptical that regulators would allow service to resume so soon.

"Take whatever date is agreed upon and add three to six months to it," McGee told Reuters. "I don't think that you're going to see any type of quick fix or compromising on the FAA side."

McGee said the trauma of the Columbia and Challenger shuttle disasters would make federal officials reluctant to sign off on the new battery system until they were absolutely sure it would work as Boeing promised.

The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board on Monday set a two-day forum for April 11-12 to examine the design and performance of lithium-ion batteries in transportation -- a comprehensive review sparked by the twin battery failures in January. The NTSB also plans to hold a separate hearing on the 787 battery later in April.

Monday's flight, the first with Boeing's new battery system, took off at approximately 12:11 p.m. Pacific time (1911 GMT) from Paine Field in Everett, Washington, on a planned two-hour mission designed to validate that all systems on the plane are working as designed.
