Good thing it is a corporation so that no one can be held accountable.

@1. Oh you can be sure that someone will take the fall for this, especially if it begins to affect stock value (which,as of today, it is not).

@1, they will blame the unions for this somehow.

I wonder if the push for battery technology from Obama-Chu lead to this decision. People always want to make the Boss happy..even if it's the wrong technology for the job.

@3 -- I think it's pretty clear now they're blaming the Japanese battery supplier.

Oh wow, Eli, do you think that their subsidiary, Narus, explained it to them?

Or could have been of their "extreme rendition" airlines subsidiaries, on the Jeppeson side?

@6 - It could be the batteries, or it could how they are situated. Poor ventilation and close grouping of lithium ion batteries can lead to overheating, so it's quite possibly a Boeing design flaw.
