    The reports not only have the FAA issuing an Airworthiness Directive but also reveal that both Japan Airlines and ANA have had to repair several aircraft due to a manufacturing flaw. Although this sounds serious and could have been, it did not injure anyone and seems to be easily fixed. By the standards of teething problems this one seems to have been promptly and efficiently handled.

    The UA emergency was, says Boeing, unrelated to this issue.

    Is that the opposite of when law enforcement estimates the street value of confiscated drugs?

    Based on the few reports available it seems fairly accurate. None of ANA's A380's were apparently out of service more than a day.
