Today an emergency landing because of smoke in the cockpit on a Japanese flight has grounded the All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliner Aircrafts. The incident follows a fire on another Boeing 787 at Logan International Airport in Boston earlier this month. 

Clive Irving, senior consulting editor at Condé Nast Traveler, explores the problems facing Boeing going forward.

Really enjoy the show - listened this morning, and just wanted to correct something that was said after the Nikki Haley comment was played. The Boeing plant is in Charleston, South Carolina, not Charlotte, North Carolina, as you said. I'm not sure if it's because we're in the South and most of the broadcast media in this country is headquartered in the North, but broadcasters seem to have a hard time distinguishing South Carolina and North Carolina, and the cities contained in them. It's frustrating!
