United Airlines Reportedly Confirms Delay of Boeing’s 777s With Pratt & Whitney Engines – $BA $UAL $DIA

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, United Airlines confirmed the delay in the return of some grounded Boeing (BA) 777 planes with Pratt & Whitney 4000 engines until at least May 12. An engine on a United Airlines 777 jet failed shortly after takeoff from Denver in February 2021, dropping debris over nearby cities but no one was injured and the plane safely returned to the airport. United is the only U.S. operator of 777s with the PW4000 engine and has 52 of those planes. 

“We continue to work conscientiously with Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, and the (Federal Aviation Administration) to safely return these aircraft to service soon, and our current plan will allow them to return in the second half of May,” stated United spokesman Joshua Freed.

In April 2021, Japan Airlines retired its fleet of 13 Boeing Co 777s with PW4000 engines a year earlier than planned.
