San Jose Mineta International Airport
All-Nippon Airways has canceled until Feb. 18 all flights to Tokyo from Mineta San Jose International Airport as it continues to ground its Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in the United States and Japan.
A Boeing 787 Dreamliner battery that caught fire earlier this month shows evidence of short-circuiting and a chemical reaction known as “thermal runaway,” in which an increase in temperature causes progressively hotter temperatures, federal accident investigators said Thursday.
As post-tropical cyclone Sandy battered much of the East Coast with strong winds, flooding and even blizzards Tuesday morning, many airports remained shut down and dozens of flights were canceled at Bay Area airports.
The plan to replace San Jose cops at Mineta International with sheriff’s deputies may not fly, at least not for now.
Bay Area airports were operating normally Monday, the day after Osama bin Laden’s death was announced.
San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed is going all out to try to attract more business for Mineta San Jose International. He leaves Wednesday on a 5,000 mile trip to Tokyo where he’ll only spend 36 hours.
