Looks pretty serious. It would have been utter mayhem if it had happened over the ocean. Wonder if FAA would restrict or suspend its ETOPS rating in the aftermath of such incidences.

Understanding that these batteries in trouble is used to assist landing?

If you mean that these batteries assist in landing during aircraft malfunction, then you are partially right. It's among the many electrical sources an ETOPS rated aircraft has.

Default When it rains, it pours.

Another JAL 787 problem, this time a fuel leak in Boston.

I have to assume it wasn't the same aircraft?

One can only imagine the response of certain people if these had been A380's or SQ aircraft.....or both.

Think the one on fire is grounded for investigation.

My two cents: The windshield crack is nothing to note. It happens on hundreds of planes a day. The fact that it happened on a 787 was a freebie to the media, who don't know any better. I'm willing to bet that it's happened a few times already.

The oil leak is something overblown too. That, I'm willing to bet it was a maintenance issue. Probably just an overfill condition.

That said, given all the redundancies that I've seen and are aware of on that plane, I still would say it's one of the safest planes to fly out there.
