    Considering that's a 10hr flight could you imagine the panicked rush of passengers if JAL had decided not to have the flight return to Moscow?

    And so on...
    Toilet glitch forces JAL to turn around Dreamliner flight:

    (Reuters) - Japan Airlines Co (9201.T) was forced to turn around its Tokyo-bound flight from Moscow on Thursday due to a problem in the Boeing (BA.N) 787 jet's lavatory, a spokesman for the Japanese carrier said.
    The incident on the 787 Dreamliner follows a spate of problems since its first flight in December 2009, including a battery fire that temporarily forced the grounding world-wide of Boeing's high-profile fleet.
    JAL spokesman Takuya Shimoguchi said the toilet malfunction on the flight from Moscow was likely caused by an electronic glitch. The airline was working on repairs on the ground, he added.
    The flight, carrying 141 passengers, departed Moscow on Wednesday evening and returned after about five hours, he said.
    Shares in JAL, which made headlines this week by signing with Boeing rival Airbus (EAD.PA) for the next generation of long-haul jets, were up 2.1 percent on Thursday morning, outperforming the broader market.

    We here at GP have been watching the downfall of Boeing from the very start:

    "Airbus clinched its first jet order from JapanAirlines on Monday, cracking a big national market long dominated by the European firm's main rival, Boeing. The U.S. planemaker acknowledged it had paid a penalty for the mechanically troubled debut of its 787 Dreamliner."

    Don't you mean 737-900? The cameras just show the rollout, doesn't show where the plane originally touched down on the runway. Let's see what the investigators say. Fortunately there were no fatalities.
