Dreamliner diverted for 2nd time this week over oil issues

By Associated Press

NEWARK, N.J. » The Federal Aviation Administration says a United Airlines Boeing 787 flying from London to Houston was diverted to Newark, N.J., because of a low engine oil indicator.

The FAA says United Airlines Flight 125 landed safely at 2:10 p.m. today at Newark Liberty International Airport outside New York City.

Two days earlier, a United Boeing 787 en route to Tokyo from Denver was diverted to Seattle because of what the airline described as an oil filter issue.

United put its 787s back in service only one month ago.

In April, the government told airlines they could begin flying the new aircraft as soon as they revamped the problematic battery systems. The planes had been grounded for three months.

The FAA says it will look into the latest incident.

Better to stick with Boeing an American company. Once they work out the minor bugs on the new 787 , things should be fine. Better than supporting a French company whose gov't and citizens don't give a rip about Americans and the US. Except for the smaller commuter jets, United, American, Delta and Southwest all fly Boeing jets.

Per the Airbus web page, United Airlines ordered 35 350-1000, a larger version of the 350-XWB. And besides Hawaiian and other American airlines, Delta, United, U.S. Air fly Airbus airplanes. And also, Hawaiian, Delta, U.S. Air has placed orders for the 350-XWB.

Thanks Hawaiian for putting bucks in French pockets. Please no posts about how some Scarebus parts are made in the US. Once they figure out why that Air France Scarebus 330 fell from the sky for no reason between Brazil and Europe, then maybe I'll fly Hawaiian. Until then if its not a Boeing then I'm not going...........and there are plenty of Boeings flying out of HNL.
