Nippon Airways, Japan Airlines check their Boeing 787 fleets for wiring problem

Posted: Updated:

TOKYO (AP) — All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines said Wednesday 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.

Spokeswoman Masumi Oguchi said ANA found two similar problems while inspecting its other 787 Dreamliners.

Japan Airlines said a 787 headed to Helsinki returned for inspections, and its nine other 787s are being checked.

Dreamliner jets were grounded worldwide in January for lithium-ion batteries that overheated or caught fire. Flights resumed four months later after a revamped battery system was installed.
