Boeing: Problem with 787 Dreamliner "Normal"

Let's just say I found Friday's CNBC interview particularly revealing, esp. since I've flown the Dreamliner on multiple trips and have a few round trips scheduled for early next year.


Aircraft manufacturer Boeing is actively investigating the electrical issues that airlines have reported on its new 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Since the 787 went into service a little over a year ago, at least four aircraft have had to have electrical system repairs.
Earlier this month, United Airlines 787 made an emergency landing after one of its six power generators failed and a Qatar Airways jet was grounded due to the problems. …
Freude am Fahren.

What they are saying is that when you design and build a brand new airplane there are always growing pains that crop up during the first few years of service. The 787 is the first clean sheet design Boeing has done since the KC-135/707 honestly. They built on that successful design to create the lines you know of today. Even then, when a new model was introduced they always had squawks.

It is testament to the robust designs and rigorous certification in modern aircraft that there have been as few true "issues" as we have seen.
