Boeing's much-heralded 787 Dreamliner has suffered a series of mechanical problems -- including fires and fuel leaks -- but some experts say the reputation of Boeing and the plane won't suffer long-term damage.
After All Nippon Airways aborted the takeoff of a 787 in Japan on Wednesday because of battery problems, the Federal Aviation Administration called on all U.S. airlines to temporarily ground the planes.
Days earlier, Japan Airlines reported a battery fire in a Dreamliner in Boston. Both airlines have grounded the plane, which was touted by the manufacturer for being much quieter and more fuel efficient than other jets.
Despite the glitches, airline experts say they don't expect any long-term impact on Boeing Co. and the eight airlines that now operate 50 Dreamliners around the world.
