All 777s with same PW engine grounded


A total of 128 Boeing 777 aircraft using the same Pratt & Whitney engine which failed on a flight out of Denver had been grounded, a spokeswoma­n for the planemaker said on Monday. As well as United Airlines, the PW4000 engine type was also used by Japan’s ANA and JAL groups, plus South Korea’s Asiana Airlines. In a statement on Sunday, the company recommende­d that all the aircraft concerned should be grounded as US regulators were investigat­ing the United Airlines flight which was forced to return to Denver airport after one of its engines caught fire and broke up.
