I am not an attorney but I wonder how much of a chance this suit really has. Again, I have no experience with the law but I would think that the pilots would only have standing to sue WN and for WN to sue Boeing. On the other hand, I'm sure the pilots would not have gone ahead with the suit unless t...

This is scary stuff. This takes the problem of lithium ion batteries on board planes to a new level. Still, no one seems to want to ban them....at least yet.
