OSLO, Sept 28 Budget airline Norwegian Air
Shuttle is returning one of its brand new Dreamliners
to Boeing, demanding repairs after the jet has suffered
repeated breakdowns, it said on Saturday.
Norwegian Air Shuttle will instead lease an Airbus
A340 from HiFly to keep its long-haul business going and will
not take back the Boeing 787 Dreamliner until it is more
reliable, a spokesman said.
"The aircraft's reliability is simply not acceptable, our
passengers cannot live with this kind of performance," spokesman
Lasse Sandaker-Nielsen told Reuters.
