News Summary: ANA to seek damages for 787 woes

Japanese carrier ANA prepared to pursue damages from Boeing over 787 jet woes

Associated Press

REDRESS: Japan's All Nippon Airways is prepared to recoup from Boeing whatever damages it suffers from flight cancellations and other costs caused by the worldwide grounding of 787 jets.

BIG PROBLEM: All 50 Boeing 787s in use around the world were grounded earlier this month after a lithium-ion battery in a 787 operated by ANA overheated. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing at an airport in southwestern Japan, shortly after takeoff. Earlier in January, a 787 operated by ANA's rival Japan Airlines, suffered a battery fire while parked at a Boston airport.

DISABLED: ANA, the biggest customer for the Dreamliner with 17 of the jets in its fleet, canceled 459 domestic and international flights canceled this month, causing about $15.4 million in lost revenue.
