The Boeing 787 Dreamliner has been a plane plagued with problems ever since it began service a few years ago.

I flew to Japan aboard one in 2014 and found it to be a comfortable ride.

The latest problem for the Dreamliner is that its engine blades have broken during mid-flight three times between July and August with All Nippon Airways, forcing emergency landings.

News On Japan reported:
Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways says it will cancel more than 300 flights of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet over the coming weeks due to a problem with the plane's engine parts. 
ANA says turbine blades of the 787's engines manufactured by UK-based Rolls-Royce could corrode and break after a certain number of hours of use.
