A whistleblower claims that Boeings’ 787 Dreamliner could be left without oxygen if the cabin were to suffer a sudden decompression.Emergency oxygen systems are supposed to keep passengers and crew alive if the cabin pressurisation fails. Without this system, passengers could be incapacitated, fall unconscious, or even sustain brain damage and/or die.

John Barnett is a former quality control engineer who has worked for the company for 32 years, including in the South Carolina plant where the 787 Dreamliner is manufactured.

“Boeing South Carolina is strictly driven by schedule and cost,” Barnett claims, suggesting that up to a quarter of the oxygen systems could be faulty but were deliberately fitted to planes to save on costs.
