New glitch on a Dreamliner

City A.M. Reporter
JAPAN Airlines (JAL) said yesterday that a Dreamliner jet was undergoing checks in Tokyo after the latest in a string of glitches on the new Boeing planes.

The plane had leaked fuel on two occasions and remains out of service while it is tested, JAL said.

On Friday, the US government ordered a wide-ranging review of the 787 Dreamliner, citing concern over a battery that caught fire in January, also on a JAL plane.

The government and Boeing insisted the passenger jet remained safe to fly. Other planes have reported cockpit and brake issues.
