All Nippon Airways had to cancel two of its first long-haul Boeing 787 flights on a new route between Tokyo and Frankfurt because of software glitches.

ANA spokeswoman Jean Saito says the Tokyo-based airline canceled a Jan. 26 flight out of Frankfurt due to a malfunction of the flaps system and a Monday flight out of Tokyo because of an error in the software that monitors aircraft controls.

The Seattle Times reports (http://is.gd/wpYQrq ) both glitches
were repaired and the planes returned to service.

ANA is the launch customer for Boeing's new twin-engine
wide-body. Saito says the airline is working with Boeing to make it
a better airplane.
