Norwegian suffers Dreamliner fault


A Boeing 787 Dreamliners operated by Norwegian Air Shuttle has suffered another technical problem.
"We had a technical problem with a hydraulic pump, resulting in a weight limitation and unfortunately we had to leave 70 passengers behind in New York on Sunday," Norwegian spokesman Lasse Sander-Nilsen said on Monday.

"We have not done the math yet, but we expect that Boeing will take their share of responsibility," he added.

The Norwegian carrier had to briefly ground both of its Dreamliners earlier this month due to a number of technical faults, including brake and power issues.

The 787 programme has been troubled by more than three years of delays in getting the aircraft into service and several problems since then, including the temporary grounding of all aircraft due to overheating batteries.
