A Qatar Airways Boeing 787 has been grounded since Sunday after the plane developed a problem similar to the one that caused another 787 to make an emergency landing earlier this month with a faulty generator.

Bloomberg reports the failure on the Dreamliner happened on the delivery flight from the U.S. It may remain grounded for another four days while repairs take place.

A United Airlines 787 was forced to land in New Orleans last week after one of its six generators suffered a failure.
