    Yes absolutely ..They couldn't handle the fly-by-wire properly due to inadequate crew training ! there was nothing wrong with the aircraft itself.

    Really??? So an aircraft that pretty much pioneered the use of digital fly by wire flight controls system allowed aircrew to enter into an extremely dangerous (fatal) manoeuvre. And that wouldn't be a public relations issue? And pilot-aircraft interface issues can be neatly written off as not an issue with the airplane and its systems itself?

    I'm pretty sure the average airline passenger wouldn't make the fine distinction you're relying on.

    The crew went below the designated hight of 100 ft and so the fly-by-wire stall prevention measures didn't kick in as the computers thought the aircraft was landing.
    Obviously it would have been a PR disaster for Airbus (even if it wasn't their fault) but any straight thinking airline executive isn't going to cancel orders prematurely. Once the final report was published public confidence would have grown again and the A320 proved to be successful.

    The final report on these battery fires might not be so easy on the ears to Boeing and the 787.

    Indeed not. I wonder how badly affected the delivery schedule will be.

    Erm, can someone clarify this for me? According to The Seattle Times, LOT will be keeping its 787s grounded until October at the earliest? Is this a journalistic error, or are the 787 problems really this bad?

    Yes, LOT have extended leases on 767s until October so have no need for their Plastic Pigs until then

    The FAA has approved Boeing's plan of a a set of fixes to the lithium ion batteries of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Thus clearing the way for the aircraft to resume flights which it said requires it to "conduct extensive testing and analysis".
