OSLO Jan 15 Norwegian Air Shuttle,
which is set to receive its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner
in just a few months, considers the recent mishaps with the
aircraft type normal and has not lost its confidence, its CEO
said on Tuesday.
A series of incidents which raised safety concerns and
resulted in investigations in both Japan and the U.S. are part
of bringing a new aircraft type into service, Norwegian CEO
Bjoern Kjos told reporters.
"These things happen. You always have minor problems when
you start flying new aircraft," Kjos said.
He added that the 787 has had fewer start up problems than
Boeing's wildly successful 777 in the 1990s.
He added he expected no delivery delays.
