    New York - Two airline passenger groups in the United States have recently challenged the safety of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

    Travelmole reports that, among their demands, the US government must limit flights on the new widebody jets until the safety of its lithium-ion batteries is proven.

    FlyersRights.org and the Aviation Consumer Action Project have despatched petitions to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) for a two-hour limit from the nearest airport on 787 flights.

    Their demands are based on what evidence.....?
    The aircraft has been cleared for flight without any restrictions.

    Those organizations demanded nothing before the battery redesign, when they found out that planes have backup batteries. :D For some people, ignorance is bliss. Imagine what would happen, if they were to learn that jet propulsion is based on burning kerosene! How can FAA let passengers sit within feet of flame burning engines?!
