Glitches canceled two ANA Boeing 787 flights
All Nippon Airways had to cancel two of its first long-haul Boeing 787 flights on a new route between Tokyo and Frankfurt because of software glitches.
ANA spokeswoman Jean Saito says the Tokyo-based airline canceled a Jan. 26 flight out of Frankfurt due to a malfunction of the flaps system and a Monday flight out of Tokyo because of an error in the software that monitors aircraft controls.
The Seattle Times reports both glitches were repaired and the planes returned to service.
ANA is the launch customer for Boeing's new twin-engine wide-body. Saito says the airline is working with Boeing to make it a better airplane.
