Instant View: U.S. FAA temporarily grounds Boeing 787s for potential fire risk

"Ultimately, you can view it as a positive thing if they can resolve what the issues are and give people confidence in the safety of the aircraft.

"In the near term, though, it's a negative. It's going to force the company to make significant investments."
