The problem now is the 78 is in the media spotlight. First it was the generator failure on a United flight a month ago. Then the two problems at Logan.

And today:

Dreamliner Brake Problem Cancels All Nippon Flight

TOKYO—More problems surfaced for Boeing Co.'s BA +3.21% Dreamliner jet Wednesday, when All Nippon Airlines Co. 9202.TO -0.55% cancelled a domestic flight due to brake problems before takeoff. The technical problem was the third in two days for a Boeing 787 jet, and the latest in a string of glitches that have hit the high-profile airplane since its debut.
The two Japanese carriers have experienced a number of technical glitches with their Dreamliners since the first 787 started commercial operation in November 2011. The problems have ranged from leaky parts to computer software hiccups.

The first came just a week after ANA's first commercial passenger flight took off, when the landing gear failed to deploy due to a problem with the hydraulic valve. In another example, the take off for a domestic return flight to Tokyo was aborted in September due to a leaking hydraulic pump.

Much more of this, and the media will be freaking out even if a coat hook breaks.
