Doesn't inspire confidence - I wouldn't fly with an airline that put aircraft in the sky that they EXPECT will have issues!

United received its first six 787s last year, and expects to get two more in the second half of this year, Jeff Smisek, the chairman, president, and CEO of United Continental Holdings Inc., said Thursday in a call with reporters.

"All new aircraft types have issues, and the 787 is no different. We continue to have confidence in the aircraft and in Boeing's ability to fix the issues, just as they have done on every new aircraft they have produced," Smisek said. United is working closely with
Boeing and the FAA to return the plane to service, he said.
