SEATTLE, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Boeing (NYSE: BA) welcomes the progress
being made in the 787 investigation discussed today by the U.S. National
Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) in Washington, D.C. The regulatory and
investigative agencies in the U.S. and Japan have dedicated substantial
resources to these investigations, and we appreciate their effort and
leadership.

Boeing continues to assist the NTSB and the other government agencies in the
U.S. and Japan responsible for investigating two recent 787 incidents. The
company has formed teams consisting of hundreds of engineering and technical
experts who are working around the clock with the sole focus of resolving the
issue and returning the 787 fleet to flight status. We are working this issue
tirelessly in cooperation with our customers and the appropriate regulatory
and investigative authorities. The safety of passengers and crew members who
fly aboard Boeing airplanes is our highest priority.

In order to ensure the integrity of the process and in adherence to
international protocols that govern safety investigations, we are not
permitted to comment directly on the ongoing investigations. Boeing is eager
to see both investigative groups continue their work and determine the cause
of these events, and we support their thorough resolution.

Boeing deeply regrets the impact that recent events have had on the operating
schedules of our customers and their passengers.
