- Travelers 'Worried' by Dreamliner Glitches
- Dreamliner Troubles
A series of high-profile incidents over the last week are the latest problems to dog the aircraft, after production glitches delayed delivery of the first plane to All Nippon Airways (ANA) by three years.
In July, test engine trouble was the subject of a probe by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board. The same month ANA said it was grounding five Dreamliners for repairs because of a defect in the Rolls-Royce engine.
In February, Boeing said about 55 Dreamliners were at risk of developing a fuselage problem.
Undeterred, ANA said in September it was ordering 11 more 787s in a deal with a list price of around $2.68 billion that will eventually take its fleet of Dreamliners to 66.
ANA shares on Tuesday rose 0.54% to 185 yen in Tokyo while Japan Airlines was down 0.68% at 3,610 yen.
The two airlines faced more problems with the heavy snowfall that hit Tokyo on Monday, cancelling more than 460 domestic flights.
On Tuesday a total 37 domestic flights were cancelled and dozens of others were delayed.
