Two Japanese Airlines Ground Boeing 787 Fleets

Japanese airline All Nippon Airways temporarily grounded its entire fleet of 17 Boeing 787 Dreamliners on Jan. 16 in Japan after smoke was observed on one of the jets in flight and the pilot made an emergency landing, according to Seattle Times.

Japan Airlines also temporarily grounded its fleet of seven Dreamliners to ensure safety, spokesperson Carol Anderson said in an email to the Washington state daily.

Last week, a battery fire broke out on an empty parked JAL 787 from Tokyo that had just landed at Logan International Airport in Boston. The National Transportation Safety Board are investigating, Seattle Times said, and the Federal Aviation Administration is conducting a review of the airliner's electrical systems.
