Japan has asked airlines not to use Boeing 777s with Pratt & Whitney 4000 engines for take-offs, landings and overflights in its territory until recently, according to the Japan Aeronautical Information Center.
The warning was issued last night, Sunday, after the safe landing of a Boeing 777 of the American United Airlines at the Denver International Airport on Saturday after it had lost its right engine in the air.

The mentioned 777 was built 26 years ago and brought two Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines.
There were no reports of injuries to the aircraft or ground.
Japan’s Ministry of Transportation has ordered Japan Airlines Co Ltd (JAL) and ANA Holdings Inc to suspend use of the 777 with PW4000 engines, and is considering further action.
The same ministry announced that on December 4, 2020, a JAL flight from Naha Airport to Tokyo returned to Naha due to a left engine malfunction.
The aircraft was built 26 years ago, as was the United Airlines aircraft involved in Saturday’s incident.
Japan has announced that ANA has 19 aircraft in its fleet and JAL has 13 Boeing 777 aircraft.
