Problems with 787 Dreamliner aircraft continue
Bjorn Kjos, Norwegian’s chief executive, will meet Boeing management in the United States next week to talk about the ongoing problems with the airline’s 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
During the autumn, Norwegian’s first two Dreamliners broke down more than half a dozen times, forcing it to lease back-up planes at short notice or cancel flights.
A third 787 was grounded just before Christmas. Spare parts had to be ordered for the plane, which is not yet back in service. To cover this latter problem, the airline has wet-leased a Boeing 777 to fly between Oslo and New York.
