1. Warning: Don't put your family on a 787 built in Charleston - "just shy of JUNK"

Here are two readers' comments from the Puget Sound Business Journal
Mark Costas Kansas City, Missouri
Boeing decision makers continue to lie about the true speed and quality of work in Charleston. They continue to attempt to convince the public it was a wise decision to build that plant. Every single section of airplane that arrives in Everett from Charleston needs rework. Everett employees have to redo the work that Charleston botches and then still build the planes to meet the rate increases. You NEVER here the media fawn over Everett because Boeing and Nikki Haley doesn't want the truth to get out. Trust me, you do NOT want to put your family on a 787 that is built entirely in Charleston.

IIRC the 1st 3 fuselage sections sent from Charlotte to Everett were just shy of JUNK. All required MAJOR reworks before they could go on the assembly line. I shudder to think what an entire aircraft would contain.
