That have grounded the 787 dreamliner -- the Wall Street Journal caught up with CEO Jim Mac earning.
They talked about what the 787 means for the company's future.
He told the journal this this airplane is our near and medium term future and ultimately speaks to our reputation.
And our brand Mike Boyd is the -- avoid international group Mike how would you rate not just the company's response.
Today's problems but the CES response because he has not been kind of the out their front man in terms of speaking with investors and the media.
I don't know what else you can do we he's a cheerleader the fact is.
We know what we know -- doesn't have a new information getting out front of people and trying to like -- it put on pom -- isn't gonna advance the that the process -- -- so I give them pretty good rating he's had his nose to the grindstone trying to get the company fixed -- being up front of the media.
We're only talking fifty airplanes out of 141000.
Across the globe.
So it's a big thing but I think he's doing the job -- should be doing.
Do you believe that -- big picture even going back to the original development because -- got McNamee pushed the development.
Of this 787 dreamliner did the company bite off more than it can't handle.
Well I well let's keep in mind this one airplane and it's not isolated problem we don't know what it is -- that a battery.
The -- has behaved properly it is performed update airlines expectations.
We have the battery issue we don't know what that issue -- they can't they can't replicate it.
-- they bite off more than they can you I think they've been off what they should have bitten off it in order -- -- -- the future with their company.
And -- in terms of their fix do you think and it looks like it could be hopeful that this plane.
Is no longer granted I was first time this has happened has been jet's been grounded since I think like late 70s1970.
Do you think that the fix is in because united said it's not gonna will have really seriously begin flying these -- at least until early Jin.
We that you you have to.
That make plans for your flight schedule an airline two to three months in advance of that that makes sense.
Both let's understand that nobody really knows but the solution is inevitable leave.
-- and the FAA administrator in all its staff.
Percent I think please bring a solution that we don't have one either.
So I again it's it's an isolated problem but one they can't -- benefits to yet I think they well but I can't -- went.
Thank you might does that talk to you might boy and I encourage everybody it's also read about Wall Street Journal article that G and GMC -- -- has got call Bob Mack Saturday.
