Boeing Dreamliner Grounding Hurts ANA, Japan Airlines Sales

ANA Holdings Inc., and Japan Airlines Co., the world’s biggest operators of Boeing Co. 787s, forecast a bigger impact this year from the plane’s grounding as they prepare to restart commercial flights with the Dreamliner.

The grounding will cut ANA’s sales by 9 billion yen ($92 million) in the year ending in March, compared with a 7 billion yen reduction a year earlier. Parking of the Dreamliner fleet will pare Japan Air’s sales by 4.8 billion yen and operating profit by 2.6 billion yen this year, Norikazu Saito, a managing executive officer, told reporters in Tokyo yesterday.
