Japan Airlines said Sunday its Dreamliner flight from Tokyo to San Francisco made an emergency landing in Honolulu, reportedly due to a possible problem with its hydraulic system. In a short statement on its website, JAL said the jet had landed in Honolulu due to "maintenance issues". "This flight terminated its operation at Honolulu International Airport," the announcement said.
A Japan Airlines- operated Boeing 787 made an emergency landing at Honolulu Airport after oil pressure in its right engine dropped, the Japanese carrier said. The two-engined jetliner en route to San Francisco from Tokyo diverted to Honolulu, landing at 1343 local time Saturday with 160 passengers on board, a spokesman for JAL said. Investigators in Japan are also probing a battery that overheated on a JAL Dreamliner parked at Tokyo's Narita airport in January this year.
