FLASH: Boeing 787 return reportedly many months away
Boeing Co.'s 787 is reportedly at least four months away from returning to service with a short-term fix, and if the lithium-ion battery system is completely redesigned, it could be nine plus months
Who cares about the Union strike - The dreamliner could be in mothball for all of 2013 and that is extremely bad news for BA bottom line. Or should we say bottom dollar. See you all at sub $70 tomorrow..
Boeing engineers sitting pretty, since they know the dreamliner will never fly without there involvement. And now that we know BA can't fly the dreamliner for this year (in all probability) then engineers will play hardball with management and tell them to improve contract offer or they will walk.
