Its easier said than done Mr. Shields . For any airline buying an airplane means putting one hundred percent faith in the company that manufactures the airplane. Air India has had relations with Boeing for the past fifty years. I do not understand why you are singling out AI for your comments. On numerous occasions it is Boeing that has offered it ( the compensation ) not that AI has demanded for it. Only a company that admits its error would offer it. Kindly put your thoughts in the right perspective Sir.
Well , now comes the news of the faulty fuel lines, so how long are we going to survive on optimism and not look at it as a potential problem on hand , which needs good, qualified attention.
Trust the "growing pains" do not turn into endless nightmares !!
The news about snags in the new Dreamliner is coming a bit more than anticipated , of any new flying machine. It would be in the interest of the common traveller , if Boeing issues a public notification assuring them , that the plane is absolutely safe. I think it is their moral responsibility .
