More Dreamliner mechanical problems reported among US. Now the government is demanding more investigations.

An American invention and American pride... we will work it out. No one ever looks at the big picture of what is behind these awesome machines that serve the world. The 747 went through the same thing.

WA4TKG: The Rolls Royce jet engines are actually the ones that have had the most issues. For instance, the one that exploded on a A380 was a RR.

I wouldn't blink an eye flying on a 787 and hope to experience it. Fuel leaks from the engines etc might not be the aircraft's fault but engine manufacturer's fault (eg Rolls Royce engine) which also experienced an explosion on the A380.

I blame Airbus.

I don't buy new technology went its rolled out, I tend to wait for the next version. Get the kinks out from the first generation.
