Batteries Not Included.

But it didn’t impact our 4th quarter profits.

1. There is a serious technical issue with the electrical systems and batteries.

2. Changing the batteries will mean a larger battery compartment and a heavier load.

3. A larger battery compartment may mean structural changes which requires tests again to ensure that the frame can withstand the new stresses.

4. A heavier load means reduced fuel efficiency and buyers would need to be compensated.

The worst thing that can happened is that these issues are covered up with the complicit of the authorities and a Dreamliner crash in the future. Buyers and passengers beware!!!

Reuters takes great pride in bashing Boeing. The “stories” speak for themselves.

Boeing does enough damage to Boeing. Remember Boeing stands behind the safety of the dreamliner – too bad the JCAB, FAA, DGA and NTSB dont agree. Perhaps something stinks should complain about them too!
