Orders by UK airlines for Boeing's Dreamliner won't be affected by the recent problems. Thomson Airways, Virgin Atlantic and British Airways say they still plan to add the plane to their fleets. The first delivery is due this Spring.
Boeing has reassured us they will do everything possible to assist the FAA in their investigation, and will be taking every step to assure passengers and Thomson of the 787's safety and get the planes back into service.
We have every confidence that Boeing and the relevant authorities will ensure sufficient oversight is maintained and that corrective action will be taken if problems are identified
The safety and security of our customers will always be at the heart of our operation and all our business decisions.
