    Nope! All 787 flights were, and continue to be cancelled for Golden Week. Do your research before making silly comments.

    The plan calls for Boeing to encase the lithium-ion batteries in a steel box, install new battery chargers, and add a duct to vent gases directly outside the aircraft in the event of overheating.

    Or, they could have told Boeing to change the batteries to ni-cad. This steel box fix -- to contain onboard fires! -- is wonky indeed, especially in light of Airbus's hasty decision to switch to safe ni-cad batteries for its 350. Airbus opted for safety. It would be nice if the FAA did as well.
