    One easy to way to prove 787’s safety

    I AM pleased to read that the lithium batteries in Boeing’s 787 may be safe according to the National Transportation Safety Board (“FAA to allow test flight of 787 today,” Business, Feb. 7). Well, we want to be sure about this, so here’s an idea: When and if the Federal Aviation Administration and the NTSB certify the batteries are safe, I would like NTSB chair Deborah Hersman and all the other muckety-mucks at NTSB and FAA to take a round-trip, nonstop flight to Japan in a 787. Upon their safe return, I would be more inclined to accept their conclusion.
