ANA Scraps 787 Dreamliner Flight as Engine Fails to Start

ANA Holdings Inc., operator of the world’s biggest fleet of Boeing Co. 787s, scrapped a service with the Dreamliner yesterday, the third cancellation for the aircraft in Japan this week after a four-month grounding.

ANA couldn’t use the 787 for the flight from Ube, western Japan, to Tokyo’s Haneda airport as the right engine failed to start, said Megumi Tezuka, a spokeswoman at the company. The airline is looking into the cause and said it was separate from the battery issues that had plagued the Dreamliner earlier.
