Boeing (BA) plays down the impact of the FAA's directive to make engine-related wiring changes to 747 airliners, saying it had urged airlines to voluntarily make the same modifications earlier this year. The FAA said the problem "could result in reduced climb performance and consequent collision with terrain and obstacles."
