Boeing says sorry as 787 probe continues
By admin


Boeing has apologised to airlines for the disruption to 787 services but was unable to throw any light on the timeframe of the US safety investigation.

Mike Sinnett, chief project engineer of the Dreamliner, also insisted it remained confident in the safety of the aircraft despite the series of incidents that led to its grounding around then world.

"I can't really say anything about the timeframe of the investigation," he said. "The NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) is really the only authorised authority in the US to talk about this investigation and they made some recent statements but I can't speculate on timeframe,

"Our commitment to our customers remains and we'll resolve the issue as quickly as we can and reduce as much as possible the amount of disruption."
