Interesting part about this is the $21k price tag for the inspection.


By Susanna Ray & Alan Levin - Dec 4, 2012 8:48 PM PT

Boeing Co. (BA)’s new 787 Dreamliners must be inspected after fuel leaks on two planes were traced to manufacturing errors, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said.
The airworthiness directive, the first for the 787 since it entered service last year, will be issued today and require checks of fuel-line connectors for an “unsafe condition,” the FAA said on the Federal Register’s website. Japan Airlines Co. and All Nippon Airways Co. both said they had repaired planes because of the fault.

Swedish media went ahead and said this was related to the incident yesterday.. Not much reported in MSM is worth reading anymore IMO.

Are you thinking that's high or low?

Reuters made careful to not link the two and, based on the AD and the very limited information out about the Houston event, it's very hard to see how there's a link.

The article says it's a $2,712, 10 hour inspection. Although that sounds low for a 10 hour inspection.

What happened yesterday? A precautionary landing?

I believe that the cost is estimated at $2,712 per work Hour. Estimated time is for 10 hours, hence $27,120.

That sounds much more likely. Thanks.

Typical news media. The UA B-787 incident has nothing to do with the AD. It should have been two seperate stories.

It's pretty typical but at least Reuters had the courtesy of separating the two stories and not jumping to conclusions!

I'm curious as to the lack of coverage/interest the Airworthiness Directive is getting on airliners.net when you look at how many press agencies are covering this online. It's not like us to let such a thing slide!

I think we are getting used to 787 issues now, so they are not high discussion topics any more. Now if someone could fly it to KL, then I could give it a try!!
