Boeing 787 Dreamliner fuel leaks add to safety concerns

Japan Airlines jet out of service after spilling 40 gallons of fuel at Boston airport in separate valve-related problem

A Boeing 787 Dreamliner jet undergoing safety checks in Tokyo after a fuel leak at Boston airport last week had leaked fuel during tests earlier in the day, according to Japan Airlines.

An open valve on the aircraft caused fuel to leak from a nozzle on the left wing used to remove fuel, a spokeswoman said.

The jet is out of service after spilling about 40 gallons (182 litres) of fuel on to the airport runway in Boston, US, after a separate valve-related problem.

In Boston, a different valve on the plane opened, causing fuel to flow from the centre tank to the left main tank. When that tank filled up, it overflowed into a surge tank and out through a vent.

The causes of the incidents are unknown, the Japan Airlines spokeswoman added. There is no timetable for the plane to return to service.

On Friday, the US government ordered a wide-ranging review of the Dreamliner, citing concern over a fire and other problems, but insisted the passenger jet was still safe to fly.

Japan Airlines and its local rival, All Nippon Airways, fly 24 of the 49 Dreamliners delivered last year.
