Japan’s ANA quashes Boeing 787 flights through May

Japan's All Nippon Airways has cancelled all projected 787 Dreamliner flights through May. 

Destinations of the aborted flights include, but are not limited to: Seattle, San Jose and Tokyo. ANA has 17 Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which is more than any other airline. They have been forced to cancel approximately 3,600 flights which would have transported just fewer than 168,000 passengers. 

Boeing Co.'s 787's have been grounded since January 16 due to the possibility of battery fires inside the planes. The company assembles the Dreamliner in North Charleston and Everett, Washington.
