AVHerald has reported
An incident of a cracked windshield. A cracked windshield typically results in declaring an emergency. AVHerald lists 15 incidents of cracked windshields since 2012. This happens in other aircraft too, but apparently not in the same way. On other aircraft, only the outer of several layers cracks after some time. On the 787 it seems to happen on start or landing, always resulting in a return to the airport. It should be noted, that the 787 windows have fewer layers and larger windows than any other type.
Also Forbes reports, that there have been at least four incidents with the batteries after the FAA mandated four-month grounding, and a physics professor at Canada's Dalhousie University states battery failures are an indication of a problem within the cells.
Incidents with both issues have been reported since 2013, when the 787 was allowed back into service after the FAA mandated four-month grounding.
To me reading this report is disturbing.
Doesn't this mean, that the aircraft is flown with knowingly unsafe battery and windshield?
As a passenger, does one have to be worried about flying in this particular type?
