FAA head says key to maintain public confidence in 787

(Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration wants to maintain public confidence in Boeing Co’s new 787 Dreamliner passenger jet after a series of safety incidents prompted a comprehensive review, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said on Friday.

At a press conference in Washington, Huerta’s boss, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, said he would not hesitate to fly on a 787 himself.
