    Basically there's some pressure built up in the battery container. JAL later found out a tape used for the battery repair was left behind and that seems to be the cause. JL021 from HND-PEK was delayed and switched to 763 as a result.

    So last time Boeing workers didn't tighten the nut on NH's 787. And presumably the repair is done by Boeing workers on this 787 too. So what's next? :eek:

    It was a rush job.

    Still don't trust 787. Hearing about the Boeing workers I will soon adapt the old slogan to: If it's a Boeing I ain't going.
