787 Woes Continue for Norwegian

Jan 23, 2014 No Comments by

Another week, another problem for Norwegian Air Shuttle‘s Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

In what is becoming routine for the Scandinavian discount airline, passengers sat through a lengthy delay after one of its 787s suffered a fuel leak in Bangkok on Sunday. A passenger’s photo of the plane spewing jet fuel while taxiing circulated widely online. The airplane has returned to Sweden for repairs.

“Boeing’s maintenance team is now working on the aircraft in Stockholm,” Norwegian spokesman Lasse Sandaker-Nielsen wrote today in an e-mail. The latest leak comes almost one year after Japan Air Lines reported a similar issueon one of its 787s, which it removed from service pending repairs.
