I'm not sure they will sigh of relief when that's true. When parked and the batteries are off (which should be the case) there shouldn't be any power to the kitchen equipment. I agree that several systems will remain powered even when the batteries are off but this shouldn't be the case with the galley, there is absolutely no need for any power in the galley when being parked. So either the batteries weren't switched off or something else went wrong with the electrical system. You can leave on the coffee as long as you want, when the power is off it shouldn't be a problem yet at this point it seemed that it was a problem after all.sean1982 wrote: If this turns out to be true, Boeing wi!ll sigh a big breath of relief I think, still, the program hasn't been exactly "lucky"
So you could be looking at multiple problems, one is the faulty galley equipment but the other one is a faulty electrical system.
And honestly, I doubt that the statement about the galley is correct, the (external) firedamage to the roof is above the passenger seats and not above the galley (which is a bit further to the back) and when looking through the door you can see no fire damage to the white walls, faulty wiring in the roof seems more plausible at this point.
This is the galley of the ET B788 (took this pic on AOQ when it visited BRU), you see that the galley is way in the back behind the door yet the firedamage is before the door position:
