Norwegian Air’s New Dreamliner Stuck in Sweden Causes Delays

Norwegian Air Shuttle AS’s second Boeing Co. 787 Dreamliner has been grounded in Sweden since Sept. 2 with apparent brake difficulties, forcing the carrier to lease two jets as it adds routes beyond the Nordic region.

The aircraft, delivered last month and not yet flown commercially, is showing indications of a braking-system malfunction. The Fornebu, Norway-based airline is working with Boeing to diagnose the issue and hasn’t yet figured out what’s wrong, spokesman Lasse Sandaker-Nielsen said by phone.
