    It is going to take forever for the battery problem to be solved. This agency, Boeing, the USA, Japan and any country flying 787 will want to investigate the problem and cause(s). Will this agency, Boeing, and the countries share their results or will the need to be the first country to solve the mystery delay the result? Certainly, there is a possibility for a law suit for losses.

    If it is the likely culprit of a manufacturing error in the batteries, Japan will delay results, while FAA, NTSB, and Boeing will say it as soon as they know for sure. There's a number of US companies that are itching for a chance to replace Yuasa as the primary manufacturer, including some that make Lithium-phosphate batteries that are far safer than the lithium-cobalt ones from Yuasa (250C thermal limit rather than 120C).

    Unless Boeing asked them to do it, it's not likely that Boeing will pay. They're getting hit financially as it is. They have completed 787's at their factory that can't go anywhere and soon they're going to have to start shutting down production of the 787 because there's no room to store them until the solution has been discovered.

    Poor, poor Boeing, I bet Airbus must be crying a river over all the problems that the shiny new 787 is having, not!
