From the LA Times:
Jan Brueckner, an economics professor at UC Irvine who specializes in the airline industry, said he doesn't believe the problem with the Dreamliner will severely affect the future of Boeing Co. "The issue may be a quality control problem at the battery manufacturer, which would be easily correctable, or maybe a design problem with the component, which would take longer to correct but still not be a major setback," he said. "Either way, this seems more like a bad version of a new-plane glitch rather than a major fault in the aircraft."
