More likely Boeing than Tesla -- there were 5 incidents in 5 days with batteries and electrical systems on their brand new 787 Dreamliners, including a couple of electrical fires.

Last time it was the FAA's fault. They suddenly and without warning

adequate supply at the manufacturers (in China) they couldn't get them
here in a hurry. THAT problem has been solved, this must be a new
problem. Probably we can blame Tesla. :-)

This happened quite some time ago, but I thought that was remedied.

Thanks for the heads up. Normally it's not quickly fixed. Takes awhile
for the Chinese to retool back to these batteries, build them, load up a
steamship, and get it over here.
