While the frequent B787 maintenance issues have largely been addressed by now, it affected their reputation.
I've piloted the 787. It's a great plane; the kinks were worked out long ago on the airframe. The problem that Norwegian and a number of other carriers had with the 787 was strictly with the Rolls Royce Trent 1000 engines. Those airlines who have GE GEnx engines have not experienced any engine problems.
