Tut,tut; bad decision not supported by the facts which grounded the plane in the first place. With the root-cause still unknown and unresolved, the fixes just mask the original problem. Within two years this decision will be regeted!!

Modifications and additional procedures are worth little unless they are clearly directed at the root-cause of the problems encountered, otherwise they amount to duct tape over band-aid fixes just to mask the problrm. With the root-cause still unknown and unaddressed the FAA has been swayed by political pressures to get the planes flying. The Japanese Transport Ministry should not rubber stamp the FAA decision, because over time the problems encountered in January will repeat, only this time they will surely doom the 787 forever. Its a pity that Boeing and FAA are being so short sighted.

Used to be the standard feature in India too; at home, in schools, railway cars, public buildings, etc., but like in Japan the new generation feel it's pre-historic. Let's hope there will be a comeback.

Boeing claims the batteries were replaced as part of maintenance and therefore this is not a safety issue. What infantile statement; maintainence itself is performed to try to preclude failures in order to prevent in-flight safety consequences.

Looks somewhat similar to the brand new Boston big dig tunnel which collapsed in 2006 bringing down a 3000kg concrete roof panel on a car, killing the passenger and injuring the driver. Poor engineering of the panel support structure was the cause. Tunnel was closed for over a year for inspections and modifications.

This is absolute nonesense. The clear implication is that any man sitting next to a child has to be a child molester. And how are they treating those potential women molesters?? I agree with the earlier comment, if the parents are so concerned, they should accompany their children.
Posted in: Airlines Qantas and Virgin Australia are under fire for their policy of moving men from seats next to unaccompanied children, causing humiliation to the passengers being moved. The airlines say the policy reflects parents' concerns. What are your views on this?

What they don't tell you is that polyps come and go. What is detected one day may not be there a month down the road. This is part of the self-healing process of the body. The body is a magnificent machine for clensing itself of this and many other ailments - just give it time. The invasive colonoscopy procedure is just not worth the risks.

Always insist that the arm rest is placed down, this way one at least has some protection. I was on a flight and the first thing the obese person sitting next to me did was to raise the arm rest, I grabbed it and said "THIS STAYS DOWN", The flight attendant was passing by and nodded approval of my action.

LG brought out a similar machine about three years back in the USA. The dryer was totally ineffective, the clothes came out "strangled" and damp, and we still had to use our old dryer and nothing we did would get the wrinkles out. We returned it to LG based on false performance claims.

This book is pure fiction. The book not only lacks logical thought flow, but there are frequent lapses in event progression. In addition, it becomes clear that the author has his very own ideas about nuclear physics, radiation, and science, all of which amount to sheer bunk. Clearly he is a believer of sensationalism, and he uses this to represent fact. Thank goodness I did not spend good money on the book and was able to get it from my local library.
