This is what happens when regulators let a company certify itself.

I did say it has nothing to do with the engines. Don’t know why the article even included that. The RR part was my personal sidebar, I’m a PW fan.

The RR engine problem has nothing to do with Boeing and the 787. Never been a big fan of RR power. And it was a RR powered ANA 787 that had both engines shut down after landing.

This problem is in the connection of fuselage sections and has nothing to do with the engines. Fortunately it appears to be a problem limited to only a handful of airplanes and not a fleet wide problem. I used to say "Scarebus, if it ain't Boeing we ain't going" but now I don't trust either companies airplanes. I'm a commercial rated helicopter pilot with experience on some pretty big helicopters and reading this stuff makes me not want to fly places any more.

It's not called the Screamliner for nothing.

This is what happens when you run let a CEO be chair of the board as well.

No accountability whatsoever. What a shame, I loved flying on the Dreamliner, easily the most comfortable long haul plane ever. Engineering got it spot on, cost cutting in manufacturing is the real problem here.

This is what happens when you run an engineering by accountants.
