American Airlines' 787 Dreamliner nightmare
According to author Peter Cohan: American Airlines probably thought it was making the right move when it bought seven Boeing 787 Dreamliners. After all, the $166 million 250 to 330 seat aircraft was known for using 20 percent less fuel — thus the profits from filling them up would be higher. But that was before American Airlines Flight 88 flew through a hailstorm outside of Beijing. The result was a punched-in nose that will keep the aircraft on the ground for now.
