ANA, Japan Airlines check 787s for wiring problem
TOKYO (AP) - All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines said on Wednesday that they are checking their Boeing 787 fleets for wiring problems unrelated to battery defects that plagued the aircraft earlier this year.
ANA said the departure of a 787 plane was delayed over problem wiring for a system to put out engine fires.
ANA, which has 20 Boeing 787 jets, said the flight from Tokyo to Frankfurt departed after the part was exchanged.
Spokesman Masumi Oguchi said ANA found two similar problems while inspecting its other 787 Dreamliners.
