Dreamliner takes flight again - do you feel safe to be on a dreamliner?

20 posts in this topic

A Boeing 787 Dreamliner took off Sunday from a Tokyo airport, the first such flight in Japan since safety issues grounded the Dreamliner fleet. Japan had authorized passenger airlines to resume flying the embattled aircraft in the country starting Friday, authorities said.

It left Tokyo's Haneda Airport on Sunday morning with a team of All Nippon engineers, that airline's chairman, Shinichiro Ito, and Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Ray Conner. The plane landed about two hours later without incident, Boeing said.

"With the successful completion of today's flight, Boeing will continue to work closely with airline customers in Japan and other countries on ... modification work to safely return additional 787s to flight in the coming weeks," Boeing said in a statement.

The flight marked a milestone in Japan, but the plane wasn't the first Dreamliner to take flight since the problems first surfaced. Ethiopian Airlines flew passengers from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, Kenya, on Saturday.

I want to be on a dreamliner for my next trip if I can.

The 787 is fine. The FAA investigation went all out on this baby and for it to get the go ahead to start flying again means its safe.
