According to a press report, a new problem has arisen with the Boeing Dreamliner long-haul jet.

This time it is about certain titanium parts that have been used in the past three years, wrote the Wall Street Journal, citing insiders.

The parts are weaker than they should be.

Boeing shares fell more than one percent in pre-market US trading.

The US aviation giant has been grappling with production defects in the 787 "Dreamliner" for a long time.

Boeing cannot deliver many long-haul jets of this type for the time being due to technical defects and has cut production.

A Boeing spokesman told the Wall Street Journal of progress in improving production, even if there were operational interruptions.

It is actually extremely important for Boeing to get the machines from the yard.

Because customers only pay a large part of the purchase price when they have received the aircraft they have ordered.

In addition, airlines can withdraw from the contract if an order has not been delivered after a certain period of time.

The rival Airbus could benefit from this if Boeing customers prefer to order from the Europeans.
