Boeing workers react to Dreamliner problems

By Christine Clarridge Published: January 18, 2013

“The 787 is revolutionary, with cutting-edge technology. It's a quantum leap of change. So, of course, it's not unexpected that there would be issues.”

A couple of engineers seemed optimistic about resolving the problems.

“It's just a challenge; that's why engineers become engineers,” said one.

Said another:

“It's probably not even going to turn out to be that big of a deal.”

Two other men, both machinists, were a bit less upbeat. “Oh, it's fixable,” said one. “But it's going to take a lot of time and lot of money, money they keep saying they don't have.”

“They don't even know what's wrong yet,” said another. “It's still too early. It's day-by-day at this point.”

“It was the right thing to do, as far I'm concerned,” said another man who would not say what he does for the company. “If there's any doubts at all, it's better to figure them out now before someone gets hurt. Safety is No. 1.”
