    Booing Boeing

    Itching to get out of Japan for a spell?
    Tropical paradise in mind?
    Want to try out that new bad boy, the 787 Dreamliner, made by Boeing?

    Well, you wont be flying JAL or ANA, at least not for the moment.
    Perhaps from today or tomorrow after they run more safety checks on them.

    What happened?

    An emergency landing at Takamatsu Airport on Wednesday as well as fuel leaks, a battery fire, wiring problem, brake computer glitch and cracked ____pit window in recent days.

    There have been delays and troubles from the get go for Boeing, but too many to list here. I'll put a nice link to a pretty decent story that's got quite a few details if you want to read further.

    But what I want to know, will this change your travel plans at all?
    Are you a flying freak that knows exactly what kind of plane they'll be flying wherever they go or are you like me and just take off on whatever is available when you want to go?

    For me, I've come to detest air travel.

    I hate the way that airlines treat us, the paying CUSTOMERS.
    Yeah, that's right, I pay your damn salary, so you'd better quit hiding behind the US government and stop saying that any criticism of you or the services you offer are a terrorist act.
    I've had captains or co-captains come to my seat to speak with me because I've been "difficult" with the waitresses.

    I hate the fees for fuel, airports, bags, air, water, toilets and whatever else they're charging us these days.

    I hate the workers.

    Now, has it come to this?

    I have to worry about the MAKERS of the planes too?

    Thoughts? Ideas? Rants?

    Considering that's a 10hr flight could you imagine the panicked rush of passengers if JAL had decided not to have the flight return to Moscow?

    And so on...
    Toilet glitch forces JAL to turn around Dreamliner flight:

    (Reuters) - Japan Airlines Co (9201.T) was forced to turn around its Tokyo-bound flight from Moscow on Thursday due to a problem in the Boeing (BA.N) 787 jet's lavatory, a spokesman for the Japanese carrier said.
    The incident on the 787 Dreamliner follows a spate of problems since its first flight in December 2009, including a battery fire that temporarily forced the grounding world-wide of Boeing's high-profile fleet.
    JAL spokesman Takuya Shimoguchi said the toilet malfunction on the flight from Moscow was likely caused by an electronic glitch. The airline was working on repairs on the ground, he added.
    The flight, carrying 141 passengers, departed Moscow on Wednesday evening and returned after about five hours, he said.
    Shares in JAL, which made headlines this week by signing with Boeing rival Airbus (EAD.PA) for the next generation of long-haul jets, were up 2.1 percent on Thursday morning, outperforming the broader market.

    We here at GP have been watching the downfall of Boeing from the very start:

    "Airbus clinched its first jet order from JapanAirlines on Monday, cracking a big national market long dominated by the European firm's main rival, Boeing. The U.S. planemaker acknowledged it had paid a penalty for the mechanically troubled debut of its 787 Dreamliner."
