It shouldn’t take that long to find out the root cause. ANA should invite Boeing’s CEO to board and fly such plane equipped with faulty lithium battery to experience the possible blaze. Instead of sitting passengers, each seat may be strapped with a fire extinguisher. I’m sure he will land safely still.

The French own the company that makes the 787 batteries that they also make for the A350. Wow a conspiracy theorist would deduct that it looks like the French did a industrial sabotage on the 787 battery to discredit the Dreamliner in support of their copied version of it, A350…

So Boeing engineers put the flight electronics in the battery compartment when it was known that the batteries had an unresolved fire issue?? And without a fire fighting system as well????

Has these guys completed a Basic Design 101 course??

Yeah, “eject” the burning battery like a flare.

That will solve the problem.
