What did they know and when did they know it? Even before battery failures led to the grounding of all Boeing (BA) 787 jets, there were problems that raised questions about their reliability, according to a NYT report. If true, BA could be open to fraud lawsuits and attempts by carriers to get back some of what they paid for the new airline. Fixing the battery issue is its "first order of business in 2013," BA says.
