Flights to Tokyo Grounded

Posted: Jan. 28th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

There was pretty bad news for Boston residents looking to head: Last week, Japan's Boeing 787s were grounded for an emergency landing check. Flights were continued on a Boeing 777 which is larger and less fuel efficient than the 787. Probes are still being conducted regarding the Dreamliners, which has been anything but a dream for Boeing thus far.

Japan Airlines will fly a Boeing 777 from Tokyo to Boston Thursday instead of a 787, after an emergency landing of a 787 operated by All Nippon Airways prompted both airlines to ground their Dreamliners Wednesday for safety checks. For Japan Airlines, or JAL, concerns about the 787, also known as the Dreamliner, meant canceling its Tokyo-Boston flights scheduled for Wednesday. The 777, which is larger and less fuel-efficient than the 787, will fly into Logan International Airport Thursday, stay overnight, and then fly out on Friday.
