Boston, MA -- Officials at Boston's Logan International Airport say crews have contained a fuel leak from an outbound Japan Airlines flight to Tokyo in the second incident involving the airline at Logan in two days.

Massachusetts Port Authority spokesman Richard Walsh said the Boeing 787 was towed back to the gate for evaluation Tuesday afternoon after about 40 gallons of fuel spilled. He said the plane had 178 passengers and 11 crew members on board.

A JAL spokeswoman said the crew had reported a "mechanical issue." The noon flight was rescheduled for mid-afternoon departure.

On Monday, a fire broke out in a battery pack in the belly of a different Japan Airlines Boeing 787, filling the cabin with smoke minutes after passengers disembarked. Federal transportation agencies are investigating the fire.
