Well, when SIA took delivery of their new B747-400 Megatops, they also
encountered problems with the galley electrics. I remember one encounter
when my flight from London-Singapore on one of their new B747-400 (9V-SPG)
was delayed for almost 3 hours because of such problems.

I had a chance to speak to the Captain, who told me that such faults are
"common with new aircrafts".
