    And Boeing will be footing the bill. Once it gets back in service, when we still have the Leap Engine reliability G.E. needs to address.

    It's gonna get worse guys, IMO, the groundings as I have already said will get longer and more wide spread. Could very well be thru the rest of this year IMO. We will see.

    The 787 was 3 months for the batteries , and there were no crashes or fatalities, so probably get them back in August, but they might be limited to the domestic market, just because the FAA recertified it, doesn't mean the rest of the world will at the same time. The government is involved nothing moves quickly.

    And here Mr Weaks is confirming my predictions as well, even somewhat the same time period for the rest of this year at least. This is not good news for us as a whole. I really do hope we get these back in the air by 2020. 19 will be a disappointment year.
