Japanese airline carrier ‘ANA’ is starting to ground all of its 50 Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet after discovering a problem with the Rolls-Royce engines. It is expected to lead to the cancellation of over 350 of its flights until late September.
Just today, when it had to cancel 9 of its scheduled 787 flights, it cost the company £414,000 in lost revenue and affected more than 3,000 passengers.
UPDATE: Is starting to ground all of its fleet. This means ANA will not stop operating all 50 of it’s fleet at one time, however large amounts will he grounded at a time while they replace the fault. They are cancelling the 787’s scheduled for use on domestic flights and not international, which is why the fleet will still be seen at international airports. This began Friday (Japan Time)
The A380 wasn’t grounded by the FAA I believe it was mainly from the manafacturer or the airline taking things into their own matter. The B787 is the only plane in around 30 years to be grounded by the FAA
