Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says it will be what he calls, a comprehensive look at the critical systems on board the jet.

(LaHood) “We will look for the root causes of recent events, and do everything we can to ensure these events don’t happen again.”

Those recent events include a cracked cockpit window, an engine oil leak, a false gauge reading and a fire in a battery on board a plane’s auxiliary power unit.

Boeing’s CEO says the company has absolute confidence the Dreamliner is safe, and he welcomes the federal review.
