FAA Issues Statement on Meeting with Boeing over 787 Battery Issues

NTSB and Boeing working together on JAL battery issue

A Boeing 787 battery that isn’t melted….

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) met with Boeing’s CEO Ray Connor yesterday to which Boeing reportedly has offered a ‘proposed fix’ for the battery fire issues that has grounded the entire fleet of 787s since January 16th.

Here is the FAA statement:

‘Deputy Transportation Secretary John Porcari, FAA Administrator Michael P. Huerta and other FAA officials met with senior executives from The Boeing Company today to discuss the status of ongoing work to address 787 battery issues. The FAA is reviewing a Boeing proposal and will analyze it closely. The safety of the flying public is our top priority and we won’t allow the 787 to return to commercial service until we’re confident that any proposed solution has addressed the battery failure risks.’

Boeing only said after the meeting that is was ‘productive.’

Which means nothing happened. 🙂
