Here’s news nobody wants to read about during the Dubai show. The last thing Boeing and aerospace firms want to hear about is 787 and batteries. But the news is back.
While news should really be that it appears a Thales battery charger is the item at fault, the world will focus on the 787 and the Japanese airlines. It appears these airlines and Boeing know what happened with the 787’s batteries earlier, there has still not been an explanation of how or why it happened.
The consequence of the mystery means that any news related to 787s and batteries continue to attract press attention. It is important that these issues are dealt with and fixed so they do not occur again. But it seems this is not case yet. Which is not a good thing.
