The chief executive of Ethiopian Airlines says his company is continuing to operate its fleet of Boeing 787 despite an investigation into a fire on one of its empty Dreamliners parked at London's Heathrow Airport. Tewolde Gebremariam told The Associated Press Saturday that there is "no flight safety issue" with the 787s and that Ethiopian Airlines, like other operators, has not made changes regarding the planes. Next week marks the first big week of second-quarter earnings, and it is sure to bring both joy and misery to Wall Street. Investors will concentrate on market fundamentals after weeks when Federal Reserve policies have dominated the market. If they see companies are still struggling, stocks could take a fall. If elected New York City comptroller, Eliot Spitzer has vowed to wield power as aggressively as he did as state attorney general, leading some in the financial community to worry that the "Sheriff of Wall Street" might be back.
