    DREAMLINER PROBLEMS

    Not to be unexpected seeing how there are so many revolutionary details of this aircraft but these electrical problems are a major concern when one is half way over an ocean.

    United Airlines (UAL) and Boeing Co (BA) confirmed Monday that a second plane in United's fleet of 787 Dreamliners had suffered electrical problems, notching up to three the tally of 787s that have developed electrical issues this month.

    The growing number focused further attention on issues with the revolutionary carbon-fiber and plastic composite plane, which has been rolled out to customers over the past year.

    Spokeswomen for United and Boeing said the problems on United's planes occurred in an electrical distribution panel, not a generator, as had been previously believed.

    • Well they had better fix the problem because if one of these planes is flying over water and goes down then there will be hell to pay,no to mention the lawsuits.
      I believe Boeing did have issues with this aircraft when it was in its developmental stages.
