There was a fresh crisis yesterday, after All Nippon Airways (ANA) joined its fellow Japanese airline Japan Airline in grounding its fleet of Dreamliners so it could carry out safety checks.
It was a precautionary move from ANA, after one of its jets was forced into an emergency landing and evacuation outside Tokyo on Wednesday, following a battery fault warning, smoke in the cockpit, and the smell of smoke in the cabin.
It was the second battery-related problem to emerge this month, after Japan Airlines reported one of its Dreamliner’s batteries caught fire in Boston last week.
