JAL 787 Makes Emergency Landing in Hawaii

A Japan Airlines flight from Tokyo to San Francisco has made an emergency landing in Honolulu, reportedly because of a possible problem with its hydraulic system.

The pilot of the Dreamliner flight JL002, carrying 171 passengers and crew, decided to divert to Hawaii after a warning message about falling pressure of lubricant oil in its right engine, according to Japanese national broadcaster NHK.

NHK said there was no fire and no injuries. In a short statement on its website, JAL said the jet had landed in Honolulu because of “maintenance issues.”
