Boeing (BA) is expected to today present a redesign of its 787 batteries to stop them overheating as it looks to persuade the FAA to allow the Dreamliners to resume passenger flights, hopefully next month. CEO Jim McNerney tells the WSJ that Boeing is confident it has identified "all probable causes" of the battery failures. United Airlines (UAL), though, has taken the 787 off nearly all its schedules through June 5. And remember the fuel leaks on a Japan Airlines 787? Investigators reckon the cause was the coating of a mechanism that controls the movement of fuel between tanks.
