Japan’s All Nippon Airways, reportedly plans to start training pilots on the 787 this month under the "assumption" the fleet will return to service in June.

Boeing has completed more than half of the 2 week series of tests required to certify the new battery system. While it has not given a clear indication as to when the Dreamliner will return to service, it has expressed confidence it will return soon. 4 weeks into the 2 week test cycle they have 1 week completed, all is not well in dreamland.

ANA, which owns 17 of the carbon-composite aircraft, will likely use the 787 initially for CARGO FLIGHTS once the new battery system is installed in an effort to reassure the flying public of the jet’s safety before restarting passenger flights, according to Reuters.

A lot of confidence in the 787, eh.

<quoted text>P.S., the engineers don't call it a "battery rework", unless they actually rework the battery. Flying a test flight is not the condition of flying, flying the whole fleet with paying passengers is, but then, a low integrity poster wriggles and attempts to make a morally ambiguous save.
Now, post some strange acronyms with ambiguous one line insults as you lose another argument, slewche.

Really ??

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.

NTSB is another whitewash. 787 will fly and will fail once again.

“is looking beyond what caused a Boeing Co Dreamliner battery to fail in January’

In order to “looked beyond” a “cause” don’t you have to know what the “cause” was in order to look beyond it?

Let her fly and many may die.

With luck the NEXT 787 fire will occur on the ground.

In any case WHEN the next fire occurs the 787 WILL be grounded forever or until the lithum ion batteries are removed from the 787.

Do YOU want to fly on a plane designed to burn?

Others can fly the 787.

I don't want to experiance the sick feeling of falling from the sky for a number of mins, knowing of the pending "Sudden Stop".

Quote] ; 'Fix: Boeing called the flight 'the final certification test for the new battery system.' It includes more heat insulation and is designed so that any meltdown of the lithium-ion battery will vent hot gases outside the plane'{End of Quote]. This absolutely NO 'Fix' whatsoever,,,,!!! It just means that if/when the 'new'(sic) batteries are installed and they too overheat and go into 'meltdown', then people will be unaware - until it's too late,,,,again,,,,!!! Exactly WHAT is the idea of increasing the heat insulation (there should be NO excessive heat), and if the batteries go into 'meltdown' then 'the lithium-ion will vent hot gases outside the aeroplane',,,,!!! Proof Positive that this is just a panic measure by the Boeing Management (sic) to try and save face over this disaster of an ill-conceived and ill-thought out aircraft,,,,!!! Well if this isn't a Major Disaster waiting to happen, then exactly what is,,,,???

You realize gasoline explodes in your car's engine, but the carburetor measures it, the head contains it, and the exhaust vents it, right ???

Never mind, above teabagger intellect, right ???

So much for selling 787 to China. Who would want to buy an airplane designed to burn BUT if they start on fire the smoke WILL be vented and the battery box WILL contain the fire

Hmmmmmmm, only a fool would buy a 787.

Let's hope that 787 battery fix is a good one.

The FAA furloughed all of their aviation safety inspectors who, on the behalf of the American traveling public, are the professionals that are (were?) supposed to make sure it works and keeps working during actual passenger operations – not just on some workbench.

Oh yeah, they’re also the same FAA professionals that are (were?) supposed to make sure the latest Boeing 737 AD issues are addressed correctly.

Just like control towers and controllers each of these inspectors is in place because risks have been identified to exist without them.

Honestly, you can't script this stuff.

Agreed, the new lithium ion battery box being used in the 787 is designed to burn. When it burns the box is designd to exhaust smoke and flamable liquid electrolyte to the outside of the airplane.

What happens IF during a designed burn of a new battery box the flamable electrolyte is vented to the outside of the 787 AND the electrolyte ends up on a control surface OR simply on the skin of the 787 and ignites the 787?

This is a simple question, if you just call me a bunch of names or insult the question then you needn't respond.

What happens IF, you spread the gasoline all over your car ?? Yeah, A STUPID QUESTION, from you....
