Boeing Warns of Ice Risks for GE-Powered Dreamliners in Storms

Boeing Co., maker of the Dreamliner aircraft, told customers of some makes of General Electric Co.- powered engines to keep away from thunderstorms, which can cause ice crystals to form and reduce the engine’s thrust.

Japan Airlines Co., the world’s second-largest Dreamliner operator, will replace 787 Dreamliners on flights between Tokyo and Delhi with 777s starting tomorrow, and will also switch to 767s on its Tokyo-Singapore route, it said in a statement yesterday.
