(AP) Japan's All Nippon Airways says it cancelled a domestic flight to Tokyo on Wednesday after a computer wrongly indicated there was a problem with the Boeing 787's brakes.


Etsuya Uchiyama, an ANA spokesman in Tokyo, said Thursday that the passengers on NH698, due to fly from Yamaguchi in southern Japan to Tokyo's Haneda airport, were transferred to a later flight.


He said the problem was fixed and the plane later returned to Tokyo.


Boeing 787s were involved in two incidents at a U.S. airport this week that sparked new concerns about the plane. Uchiyama said ANA had seen a computer problem like Wednesday's once before but that small glitches were to be expected with a new model aircraft and the problems seen so far with the 787 Dreamliner were typical.
