"At 5:15 p.m., NBC 7 heard back from Japan Airlines representatives who said the pilot of the flight had received an “error” message regarding the operation of the anti/de-icing system."

And cue the "787s are not safe" comments now!
I admit, it was an unlucky day for JL's 787s, but I'm sure these problems will be sorted out easily. I mean, let's be realistic, this probably wouldn't have been reported on had the flights not been 787s (well, it still would've been reported on A.nut, because that's just what we do! )

I only had to read "SAN diversion" in the thread title and I knew exactly what flight it was without even opening the thread. Sorry to hear about it, but the 787 is under a freakin' microscope right now. There are probably a hundred diversions, inop toilets, faults and whatnot on all sorts of airframes today, but the 787 is going to get all the attention, warranted or not.
True, but probably well deserved. My buddy is a 787 pilot and he says its great but the computer system has "Gremlins" that give them, Ops, and the Mechs constant headaches while trying to get rid of all the error messages. He says its getting better though .... so fingers crossed.
