2 JAL 787s At Boston Now

Mon Nov 12, 2012 2:22 pm

Sunday's outbound JAL 7 is stuck in Boston because of an inoperative PA system. It is now parked next to a China Air Lines 744 cargo jet that is among a dozen or so JFK diversions...DL 744, LA 763, Jamaica 738, and many more.

Today's JAL 8 is an hour out (JA827J), so that will make two JAL 787s on the deck in Boston today for a short while.

Looks like today's flight 7 left an hour late. And yesterday's flight is underway finally too. Rough days for JAL in BOS.

Wow, of all the things that you never knew could cause an AOG situation...

I would imagine that at first, a broken PA doesn't sound worthy of grounding a plane over. But when you consider that it's the way a crew communicates with passengers, the PA rises to the top of the list of safety things a plane ought not leave without. Either that, or hope everyone knows sign language.

I would imagine that this would be a loud and effective way to disenchant potential future customers- but I'm new here and not sure if your post was serious or not.

It was probably meant as a joke, but it's hard to tell on here.
