Boeing defending the safety of its 787 dreamliner jet after three incidents and as many days including one fire of fuel -- on a plane in Boston.
And then a probe opened by federal safety regulators Mike Boyd is president of Boyd group yeah.
-- joining us now from Denver with what to make of this what do you make of this.
It's a new airplane new airplanes have glitches but this is a breakthrough airplane so it's getting a lot of scrutiny of these things happen.
It's just kind of like something that's gonna we're gonna be working through over the next couple months after that we're never gonna hear another thing about it.
What then it's getting attention table 'cause the first delivery of this jet was three -- -- eight.
Where they had problems with the -- there were -- development problems might it's not unwarranted as it.
No I mean this is an airplane that's a whole new production stream.
A whole new supply track.
It's a whole new composite airplane -- -- have to expect some of those things.
But I think now that it's in the air and flying for several months -- a couple of airlines.
I think it's gonna work out but again.
It's gonna be one of those issues we're always gonna have to make sure that there are no more these glitches -- amid the lavatory handle -- -- we're gonna know about it.
Right and they give people are gonna between about it instantaneously.
If behave -- -- on the wrong on one of these jets.
And the story that is being missed you think.
Is Boeing's dobbs regain dominance over Airbus and then the competition for my northern neighbor.
Yeah I mean Boeing you know what they've taken the lead in terms of sales with Airbus that's great but.
Coming up behind his bombard -- with this new C series jet that has incredible economics.
And it's -- it's a sleeper right now but it's gonna take off -- -- -- gonna have to worry about competition across the Atlantic as well as up north in Canada and that's gonna be interesting to see over the next couple years.
In terms of flying and how crowded planes are why should flyers care if -- all.
About this new Boeing plane and -- bombarding air jet as well.
Well we'll look at the couple things one you're still a relatively small -- -- from the -- Marty -- gets a much wider seat.
But on not that this new 787 what do you think -- -- -- airplane -- composite airplane.
He's still gonna have but seventeen and a half inches for your tush so -- you're gonna be just as comfortable with uncomfortable regardless of what they say -- to Tokyo.
In terms of the Concord and the flying experience is just going to be more of the same Mike.
Where you have very clouded crowded planes where passenger traffic you think's gonna be flat.
We have reduced capacity and ticket prices will continue to.
Be quite lofty depending on the time of the year.
Well there is no question we're -- they're going to be cutting out capacity in the coming year which means that demand is gonna that exceeds supply in some cases they'll go up.
But let's just you can rest assured that the flying experience we just this inconvenient next -- it was last here maybe a little worse.
Mike it was great to see thank you so much Mike Boyd and I want to thank that American Airlines flight attendant who was.
So intensely ridge to me last time I flew American Mike thank -- --
