Boeing 787

Kwiley Guest

hey guys,
I was wondering if you knew of any problems with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner that could help me for a project I am doing for my Management class. We are doing a "Battle of the Skies" theme between the new planes from Boeing and Airbus. I am researching the problems with the Boeing planes and am having a hard time finding anything on it. So if you could help me out, that would be great! Thanks so much.

😕 What sort of problems?
I doubt very much that we will ever hear of any major problem,espesally from Boeing(unless something drastic happens,now or in the future when the aircraft is in service)

Did you know that Boeing nearly canceled the 737 in the early 70s.It was too slow and the year they nearly canceled,they sold 1 737,only a new engine design saved it(and they have never looked back)

Incase you have not seen this ➡

Well I don't know if this helps. Boeing says that their 787 is being built as a rival for the A380 but it's not big enough to rival it so Boeing has been designing an aircraft with very similar preportion to the A380 [It's a 747-400 with an entire upper deck].When I gather more info I will post it to this site. When does your theme have to be in ❓

thanks guys for all your help. The information is due by Tues at the latest and our group presentation is on the following Thurs (so one week from today). After discussing things we my group, we have reorganized things and I am now doing just all general information on the Boeing 787. I should be able to make 2 and a half pages from all the information I have found, but I am sure that any additional information you can help with would be more than welcomed!! Thanks again. If it helps, my email is kwiley@clemson.edu if you want to just email me the info. Thanks again.

Oh... and I'm sorry about posting it in both forums. I wasn't sure how popular this site was cause I found it on a google search, so I thought it might help with getting responses if I posted in more than one part. How do I delete it if I am not a member?
