A Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner of Japan Airlines, flight JAL/JL759 from Tokyo/Narita, Japan to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, diverted to Osaka/Kansai International Airport (KIX/RJBB), Japan, due to an engine trouble while en route at FL380 near Amami islands.

No injuries were reported among 194 people onboard.
