A Japan Airlines Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, operated as JAL/JL17 from Vancouver, Canada to Tokyo/Narita, Japan, was at 140 km east of Narita when the No.2 engine had to be shut down.
Partial fan ice shedding resulted in fan imbalance that in turn caused substantial damage to the engine and an in-flight non-restartable power loss. The engine involved was a General Electric GEnx-1B()/P2.
The other engine on the airplane was an older design GEnx-1B()/P1 configuration that incurred expected wear and minor damage during the icing event and continued to operate normally. The event occurred in icing conditions at an altitude of 20,000 feet.

A safe landing was made at Narita at 16:10 JST. No injuries were reported.
The aircraft was back in service on February 8.
