Asahi and several other papers wrote that Mitsubishi Aircraft will likely wait until late September or later to fly its MRJ passenger jet to the U.S. after a problem with its air-conditioning system caused flights to be aborted twice. The company needs time to fix the system and obtain flight approval again from Russian aviation authorities as the aircraft plans to make a stop at an airport in Russia. The company is making arrangements to postpone its plan to open a flight test base in the U.S. on Sept. 9.
