    Boeing’s B787 Dreamliner has experienced a fresh round of problems after Japan Airlines turned back two flights with separate technical problems.

    Business Traveller Asia-Pacific reported that a flight from San Diego to Tokyo returned to the US airport after anti-icing equipment failed, while a Moscow-bound service was forced to return to the Japanese capital after an electrical fault put six lavatories out of use.
