Santa bad calls dreamliner is looking more like have nightmares lately today up fuel leak in Japan airlines 787 Jumbo jet.
That forced the pilot to cancel its take off from Boston's Logan Airport yesterday same airport same airline.
Different 787 that one of electrical fire.
United Airlines inspecting all its -- miners after that incident that announced today just discovering.
All of wiring problem in this same area of the Japan airlines fire.
To aviation expert Michael -- and where there's smoke could there be even more.
Fire thing about a Michael airlines have ordered more than 850.
Of these Boeing planes.
Should folks February.
Well I think Boeing should be worried with these airlines are making their whole system's built around this airplane.
And -- like you said this is becoming more of a bad dream than anything else but.
For consumers feel that the worry there there are many of flying but the worry there it will your airplane be at the -- they're gonna -- NA are getting fixed when your flight's supposed to depart.
On pop up so much worried about -- getting fixes -- says dying so.
I'm wondering I know these are aberrant incidents but at a -- we've seen a lot of them and and knowing as I do.
That all the airlines have ordered record numbers like I said over 850.
They're they're they're going to be eventually put on lines all the major carriers should I worry.
You well I I think there there should be some concern there right.
I think like a fuel leak that wasn't a drip drip that fuel -- and Boston was forty gallons of go juice all over the -- held what effective Saturday night -- Michael if there was losing fuel like that midair.
It would -- -- -- they be losing fuel less stuff isn't all that.
That flammable in the sky lessons and jet engine but that could be very serious if you're over Guam or somewhere and have no -- to land that could be very serious though.
Boeing does have issues more I think than just heating problems here.
In the real concern is will those airplanes come out of the factory in -- for the customer.
On time again so Boeing's got some problems to deal what.
I'm you know I always wonder -- when a new model Blaine governor Eliot -- -- -- -- earlier talking about.
I guess they had similar she is with the 777.
When it came out.
That they were resolved they were largely -- -- -- at the beginning most of these incidents.
With the dreamliner appear to be relatively minor -- as you say if you -- midair over bomb might be less but but.
What what is going on here this type of series of problems verses other new planes when they'd been announced or or or rolled out there.
Well 740 sevens as long time ago that they had major problems at the engines went out of -- -- something it was major major stuff they work through what.
The difference here is this is an entirely new.
Production chain it's an entirely new technology.
So I think it's being watched a lot closer.
And I think as a result of that every engineer at Boeing in Seattle right now working on this problem.
You know Michael is a very dumb child is even amateurs question to ask what when these dream liners are out there.
What would it -- me when I book a flight commercial flight.
-- checked by the way is this -- -- dreamliner because I don't wanna be on -- dreamliner or leave it.
It might I think you know the the argument that -- might be child and we'll tell -- or it might be -- good idea.
No no nor -- -- good -- Never and never offend the host the bad I -- but I think that the reality here is.
When you're on the dreamliner -- an economy can't happen you've got -- eighteen inches of seat and that's all you have on any airplane.
So in terms of comfort level I don't think it's much different and the -- so if you have a feeling you'd rather be on another airplane.
It's not gonna harm me one way or the other.
Do you think they should have named dreamliner -- that set up Paul secretaries issued just -- okay liner companies.
What I think you wanna hear the word dreamliner the dream sickle popsicle or something on -- senator let me and I would have picked.
Alright Michael you're the best and also the smartest this stuff it's always a pleasure having -- a -- And editor I'd like me he knows -- what he speaks on this stuff.
