Boeing 787 fuel leak: 2 issues in 2 days

BOSTON – Officials at Boston’s Logan International Airport said crews have contained a fuel leak from an outbound Japan Airlines flight to Tokyo in the second incident involving the airline at Logan in two days.

Massachusetts Port Authority spokesman Richard Walsh said the Boeing 787 was towed back to the gate for evaluation early Tuesday afternoon after about 40 gallons of fuel spilled. He said the plane had 178 passengers and 11 crew members on board.

A JAL spokeswoman said the crew reported a “mechanical issue” before returning to the gate.

On Monday, a fire broke out in a battery pack in the belly of a different Japan Airlines plane, filling the cabin with smoke minutes after passengers disembarked.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the fire.
