All Nippon Airways
The FBI says it has arrested a 38-year-old passenger on board a flight from Tokyo to New York that was diverted to Anchorage, and All Nippon Airways said it was because of “unruly behavior.”
Japan’s All Nippon Airways will resume nonstop service between Sea-Tac Airport and Tokyo Narita on June 1, according to the Port of Seattle. Those first flights will use the Boeing 777, then in September, ANA will switch to Boeing 787s.
It’s likely that fires on two Boeing 787 Dreamliners were caused by overcharging lithium ion batteries, aviation safety and battery experts said Friday, pointing to developments in the investigation of the Boeing incidents as well as a battery fire in a business jet more than a year ago.
An All Nippon Airways flight made an emergency landing Wednesday morning in western Japan after a cockpit message showed battery problems, in the latest trouble for the Boeing 787 “Dreamliner.”
