In recent years, increasingly long and very irritating security lines have been plaguing the regular airline traveler. Showing up for a flight two hours in advance can sometimes be cutting things too closely. Constantly changing the rules on people has done nothing to improve the waiting times or attitudes either.

Boeing has been working on its newest airliner for some time now, and what started out as the story of a plane that was making its way from concept to sky in record time has changed to one of delays and missteps. From supply problems, and parts shortages, to rushing assembly of the prototype for a photo shoot, the delays keep adding up.
