Boeing CEO: 787 problems 'normal'
By: Ruchi Schroff
Boeing CEO Jim McNerney said that the failure of electrical generators on two new Boeing 787 planes are normal problems for a jet programme that is just entering service, Reuters has reported.
Last week, Qatar Airways was forced to ground one of its three new 787s after it found the problem. A United flight also had to make an emergency landing due to similar problems.
"We're having what we would consider the normal number of squawks on a new airplane, consistent with other new airplanes we've introduced," McNerney said in an interview on CNBC. "We regret the impact on our customers, obviously. But ... we're working through it."
