A Norwegian Air Shuttle Boeing 787-800, registration LN-LND performing flight DY-7148 (dep May 29th) from Boston,MA (USA) to London Gatwick,EN (UK), was enroute at FL370 entering radar coverage of Ireland when the crew initiated a diversion to Shannon (Ireland) due to being refused to enter UK airspace over nav/comms problem. While descending towards Shannon Shannon Approach advised that the Mode-C transponder signals were unreliable. A short while later the crew queried whether ATC now had a proper transponder signal, which ATC confirmed. The aircraft landed safely on Shannon's runway 06.

The aircraft remained on the ground for 11 hours, then continued the journey climbing to maximum FL270 and reached London with a delay of 11.5 hours. The aircraft remained on the ground in Gatwick for another 21 hours before resuming service.
