BOSTON,NY--  Brake problems prompted Japan's All Nippon Airways to cancel a Boeing 787 Dreamliner flight scheduled from western Japan to Tokyo Wednesday.

It was the latest mishap in a series of setbacks for the new aircraft this week.

A fuel leak forced a 787 operated by Japan Airlines to cancel take-off to Boston's Logan International Airport Tuesday.

An electrical fire was also reported this week on another 787 after a Japan airlines flight to Boston from Tokyo.

Japan is the Dreamliner's biggest customer to date.

A spokesman for Japan Airlines, which operates seven dreamliners, said the carrier had no plans to change orders it has placed for another 38 aircraft.

All Nippon Airways, which operates 17 dreamliners, said it was sticking with its orders for another 49 of the planes.
