We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http:// www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this proposed AD. Discussion We received a report of failure of the anchor attachment on the occupant restraint system on the standard attendant seat due to an undersized attachment fitting. This condition, if not corrected, could result in failure of the restraint attachment fitting and consequent detachment of the attendant seat during an emergency landing, which would cause injury to passengers and crew and could impede a rapid evacuation. Relevant Service Information We reviewed Boeing Service Bulletin B787–81205–SB250027–00, Issue 001, dated January 14, 2014. We have also reviewed UTC Aerospace Systems Service Bulletin 2787–25–006, Revision B, dated July 10, 2013. The service information describes procedures for replacing the existing restraint attachment fitting to seat joint fitting on the standard attendant’s seat with a new, improved attachment fitting. FAA’s Determination We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design. Proposed AD Requirements This proposed AD would require accomplishing the actions specified in the service information described previously. Costs of Compliance We estimate that this proposed AD affects 1 airplane of U.S. registry.

SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for 
certain The Boeing Company Model 787-8 airplanes. This proposed AD was 
prompted by failure of the anchor attachment on the occupant restraint 
system on the standard attendant seat due to an undersized attachment 
fitting. This proposed AD would require replacing the existing 
restraint attachment fitting on the standard attendant seat with a new, 
improved attachment fitting. We are proposing this AD to prevent 
failure of the restraint attachment fitting and consequent detachment 
of the attendant seat during an emergency landing, which could cause 
injury to passengers and crew and could impede a rapid evacuation.

DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by May 12, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Comments Invited

    We invite you to send any written relevant data, views, or 
arguments about this proposal. Send your comments to an address listed 
under the ADDRESSES section. Include ``Docket No. FAA-2014-0168; 
Directorate Identifier 2013-NM-208-AD'' at the beginning of your 
comments. We specifically invite comments on the overall regulatory, 
economic, environmental, and energy aspects of this proposed AD. We 
will consider all comments received by the closing date and may amend 
this proposed AD because of those comments.
    We will post all comments we receive, without change, to http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information you provide. We 
will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we 
receive about this proposed AD.

Discussion

    We received a report of failure of the anchor attachment on the 
occupant restraint system on the standard attendant seat due to an 
undersized attachment fitting. This condition, if not corrected, could 
result in failure of the restraint attachment fitting and consequent 
detachment of the attendant seat during an emergency landing, which 
would cause injury to passengers and crew and could impede a rapid 
evacuation.

Relevant Service Information

    We reviewed Boeing Service Bulletin B787-81205-SB250027-00, Issue 
001, dated January 14, 2014. We have also reviewed UTC Aerospace 
Systems Service Bulletin 2787-25-006, Revision B, dated July 10, 2013. 
The service information describes procedures for replacing the existing 
restraint attachment fitting to seat joint fitting on the standard 
attendant's seat with a new, improved attachment fitting.

FAA's Determination

    We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all the relevant 
information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is 
likely to exist or develop in other products of the same type design.

Proposed AD Requirements

    This proposed AD would require accomplishing the actions specified 
in the service information described previously.

Costs of Compliance

    We estimate that this proposed AD affects 1 airplane of U.S. 
registry.
    We estimate the following costs to comply with this proposed AD:

Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to 
issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the 
authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs, 
describes in more detail the scope of the Agency's authority.
    We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: ``General 
requirements.'' Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with 
promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing 
regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator 
finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within 
the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition 
that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this 
rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

    We determined that this proposed AD would not have federalism 
implications under Executive Order 13132. This proposed AD would not 
have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship 
between the national Government and the States, or on the distribution 
of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government.
    For the reasons discussed above, I certify this proposed 
regulation:
    (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive 
Order 12866,
    (2) Is not a ``significant rule'' under the DOT Regulatory Policies 
and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979),
    (3) Will not affect intrastate aviation in Alaska, and
    (4) Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or 
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The Boeing Company: Docket No. FAA-2014-0168; Directorate Identifier 
2013-NM-208-AD.

(a) Comments Due Date

    We must receive comments by May 12, 2014.

(b) Affected ADs

    None.

(c) Applicability

    This AD applies to Model 787-8 airplanes, certificated in any 
category, with Goodrich Model 2787 seat assemblies installed.

(d) Subject

    Air Transport Association (ATA) of America Code 25, Equipment/
furnishings.

(e) Unsafe Condition

    This AD was prompted by failure of the anchor attachment on the 
occupant restraint system on the standard attendant seat due to an 
undersized attachment fitting. We are issuing this AD to prevent 
failure of the restraint attachment fitting and consequent 
detachment of the attendant seat during an emergency landing, which 
could cause injury to passengers and crew and could impede a rapid 
evacuation.

(f) Compliance

    Comply with this AD within the compliance times specified, 
unless already done.

(g) Replacement

    Within 24 months after the effective date of this AD: Replace 
the existing restraint attachment fitting on the standard attendant 
seat with a new, improved attachment fitting, in accordance with 
Boeing Service Bulletin B787-81205-SB250027-00, Issue 001, dated 
January 14, 2014; and UTC Aerospace Systems Service Bulletin 2787-
25-006, Revision B, dated July 10, 2013.

(h) Alternative Methods of Compliance (AMOCs)

    (1) The Manager, Seattle Aircraft Certification Office (ACO), 
FAA, has the authority to approve AMOCs for this AD, if requested 
using the procedures found in 14 CFR 39.19. In accordance with 14 
CFR 39.19, send your request to your principal inspector or local

    (2) Before using any approved AMOC, notify your appropriate 
principal inspector, or lacking a principal inspector, the manager

district office.
    (3) An AMOC that provides an acceptable level of safety may be 
used for any repair required by this AD if it is approved by the
