Allright, been watching this BA fiasco unfold and the little voice, starting with a whisper, and recently a little louder - "Get greedy when others get scared".

BA hasn't dropped 20% in one day, but does close somewhere around 6% lower than it did a few weeks ago.

Anyone been doing due diligence on BA and have a good enough working knowledge to evaluate the current 787 issues? It seems like every government organization has grounded the planes.

At some point this becomes an overreaction that will be recovered after a credible fix is initiated. Obviously, when your product is one massive flying bus, you don't want to give your clients any reason to not buy your product. So long-term damage might be present, but if they nip this in the bud, then the world moves on.

I'll perform some financial analysis here soon if I decide to free up some cash. Just thought I would test the waters.
