Aircraft for United Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Air Canada are impacted by the impromptu grounding, the report said, citing a person familiar with the situation.
Boeing confirmed to The Air Current that it had identified two distinct manufacturing issues in the fuselage sections of certain 787 jets. Singapore Airlines said it was aware that one of its Boeing 787-10 aircraft was affected by the technical issue.
"The aircraft is not in service and we will work closely with Boeing on a solution" a Singapore Airlines spokesperson told Reuters.
Boeing, Air Canada and United Airlines did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
