ANA 698 was canceled because brake parts from the rear left undercarriage needed to be replaced, said the spokesman at Yamaguchi Ube airport in western Japan.

On Tuesday a Japan Airlines Boeing 787 was grounded in Boston following a fuel spill, one day after another plane of the same type suffered a fire.
