Dreamliner to be replaced for Tokyo-Boston service Thursday, Friday

Japan Airlines said it will fly a Boeing 777 from Tokyo to Boston Thursday instead of a 787, after an emergency landing of a 787 operated by All Nippon Airways prompted both airlines to ground their Dreamliners Wednesday for safety checks.

For Japan Airlines, or JAL, concerns about the 787, also known as the Dreamliner, meant canceling its Tokyo-Boston flights scheduled for Wednesday.
