- A Japan Airlines Boeing (BA) 787 has experienced problems with a battery on a flight from Helsinki to Tokyo, although it didn't overheat or give off smoke, as happened earlier in the year in two cases.
- The battery, which was connected to the auxiliary power unit, has been removed and is being inspected.
- Meanwhile, Washington state's legislature has passed a bill to extend $8.7B of tax breaks and other incentives for Boeing through 2040 in an attempt to persuade the aircraft maker to build the next-generation 777X in the Seattle area.
- The vote comes amid discontent among machinists over a new labor contract, prompting Boeing to warn that it could produce the jet elsewhere if staff don't approve the deal in a vote on Wednesday.
