Boeing shares speaking of aviation and other and the green -- last time we checked as the aviation giants.
-- a plan to get its grounded 787 dreamliner back in the air.
Oh they need a plan alright Adam Shapiro has got the latest joins us right now he's he's standing as I guess very excited about the -- very.
-- might order a little bit later here at the bar.
Probably the deal this is important his original Boeing yesterday even on -- day when the Dow when we saw no three three digit drop.
In the Dow bond closed up yesterday why -- they do have a plan but they still haven't answered the key question.
What caused the fire in the plane in Boston and the fire in the battery in the plane in Japan they have a solution that they are gonna present to the FAA to -- And partially what it says -- we're gonna make had redesigned the battery so that the cells within the battery.
Have a greater space in between them so if they heat up they won't catch fire there's also a potential to -- -- -- Barrier in between each each -- to build a new box to contain the battery.
So that if a fire does occur it's contained and -- to vent the smoke outside the aircraft so it doesn't go in to.
The passenger compartment as you said Boeing shares are trading up today assuming the FAA says yes this is a fixed go for you could have 78 at 780 -- back in the -- Come April the problem for Boeing.
Is that it's cost them about 200 million a month in delivery because that's not what -- getting as they don't deliver these aircraft still making them but again be key.
-- haven't figured out yet what caused the fire short term effect now this new battery in which is lighter weight is say the -- gave the problem.
Why -- they just -- with the old heavier battery pocket the difference a battery be such a big deal -- a huge Jumbo -- well first of all it's not just one battery there are literally several batteries not much on the jet.
That -- a -- and if you put in the old fashioned nickel cap name -- They way even more.
Think of -- every pound you add to that aircraft.
This is some tracks from the profits of operating that aircraft the airlines know it Boeing knows it in the 787 the reason they use the -- -- battery.
Was they they cut was at 30% of the weight.
From this aircraft batteries and through the composite material that they use instead of traditional metal yeah.
I don't like controls -- scientist but also the lighting controls in the 787 -- mean it's a whole new lighting system and it never been done revolutionary.
That ion battery is part of the reason that that lighting system was able the to install -- -- -- I didn't die.
My favorite way to describe the savings by having lighter weight aircraft.
Is the UPS FedEx model they -- the same 757.
But UPS designed the containers which carrier packages.
To use a lighter material and they actually made them a bit -- they can get one more container on their 750 sevens.
And then can FedEx that equates to 250000.
Dollars more a year in profit per aircraft than what FedEx get.
Who -- likely to get one of those batteries on this set.
At some point on Fox Business which ones you know it wanted to do know look at I'm not as long as -- is a catch fire in our studio I think pushing get paid technically and -- you've.
Right now if you got a Blackberry or if you've got and I found you've got a lithium ion battery in there but that's indoor and should -- they carry them in a much more dangerous location than the ones in the -- thank you Adam.
