ANA counts the cost of grounded 787s, is not yet seeking damages
ReutersTOKYO -- All Nippon Airways (ANA) Co., the launch airline for Boeing Co.'s 787 Dreamliner jet that has been grounded with undiagnosed battery problems, said it lost more than US$15 million in revenue from having to cancel flights this month.

Asia's top airline by revenue said it was unclear as to when Boeing's sophisticated new plane would resume commercial flights, making it harder to predict the longer-term financial impact of having the plane idle.
ANA, valued at close to US$7 billion, said it had not yet decided whether to claim compensation from Boeing, and it had no plans, for now, to change a growth strategy that has the technologically advanced 787 at its core. But it conceded that a prolonged grounding of the plane would impact that strategy.
