Oh dear, glad Thomsons are using a 767 on my upcoming flight to Cuba. Not a great advert for the so called future of aviation.

If you are a Boeing fan, do not even bother to click on the link and more so, read the comments. The comedians are having a field day!

The plane is new, the systems are new. Most new products have shakedown periods. Personally, when a car model undergoes a major overhaul I would not buy it the first year. I wait for the second. I think we are seeing the same with the Dreamliner. Airlines who didn't want to be "first" are probably getting a good chuckle out of all this By the time they receive their planes, the problems will be fixed.

I presume the airlines that were the first to buy the Dreamliner also got very big discounts from Boeing.

United has also stopped playing the pre-safety "we love the dreamliner" piece. That honeymoon ended quickly.

About a third of the Dreamliner is made in Japan
