The company ‘s announcement followed the announcement of the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on the acceleration of inspections on 777 aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines.

United said it would continue discussions with US authorities “to decide on any additional steps that may be needed to ensure that the aircraft in question comply with strict safety regulations and can return to active service.”

The FAA has said it expects the new inspections to require the temporary departure of some aircraft from active service.

According to the same service, United Airlines is the only airline in the United States to use the 777 aircraft with the listed engines.

The same aircraft are in use by airlines in Japan and South Korea, according to the FAA.

“We have examined all available security data since yesterday [προχθεσινό] incident, “the FAA said in a statement. “Based on the initial information, we conclude that the test interval should be accelerated to the turbine blades that are unique to this engine model, which is only used by 777 aircraft.”
