Japan Airlines to resume daily Boston-Tokyo service Friday

Japan Airlines will resume daily service out of Boston on Friday on a Boeing 777, with departure times delayed by about six hours on certain days.

The aircraft that normally serve the Boston-Tokyo route were part of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet grounded Wednesday by the Federal Aviation Administration after several battery fires, including one on the ground at Logan International Airport.

Japan Airlines voluntarily grounded its 787s on Wednesday after a battery malfunction forced an All Nippon Airways 787 to make an emergency landing in Japan.

Service was canceled out of Boston Wednesday and Thursday.

Flights out of Boston will operate on schedule, leaving at noon, on Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday, and next Thursday, Jan. 24. Flights will be delayed until 6 p.m. on Sunday, Wednesday, and next Friday, Jan. 25.

Japan Airlines has seven 787s out of service, and the delays are a result of the airline rotating in other aircraft to cover the schedule.

The airline has not announced the schedule beyond Jan. 25.

Japan Airlines has canceled service between Tokyo and San Diego, the only other US city the airline serves using a 787.
