Friday said one of its units was responsible for a problem with
fire-fighting systems discovered in some Boeing Co
Japanese airline ANA Holdings said on Wednesday
that it had found an electrical wiring problem in the fire
extinguishers of the engines on three Boeing 787s.
An assembly error at its service center impacted some
refurbished fire extinguisher bottles, a United Technologies
spokesman said in an email.
"This error has been corrected and we are working with
Boeing and the airlines to complete the necessary inspections,
which we expect will be completed over the next few days."
Japan Airlines Co Ltd also said on Wednesday that
it was inspecting its Dreamliner fleet for similar problems.
The Wall Street Journal reported late on Thursday that the
bottle-assembly at a Boeing supplier facility was responsible
for the faulty fire systems.
