The share of Boeing, the world’s largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems, fell by 2.5 pct, on January 18, 2013 according to AFP.

This happened following the frequent incidents the Boeing 787 Dreamliner encountered. Some of the problems include ignition of its battery pack on Japan’s All Nippon Airways, the largest operator of the plane, shortly after the flight landed at Boston’s Logan International Airport. Fuel and oil leaks, crack in the cockpit window and a computer glitch were also found. These erroneously indicated a brake problem. Following this, the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has grounded all dreamliners in its jurisdiction, on Jan, 18. This follows another incident in Japan. All Nippon Airways said a cockpit message showed battery problems and a burning smell were detected in the cockpit and the cabin.
