United Airlines’ PW Powered Boeing 777 May Be Grounded Until 2022

United Airlines’ Pratt & Whitney powered Boeing 777-200s remain grounded over six months following an uncontained engine failure over Denver, Colorado. Sources say regulators are looking to request additional safeguards, which could mean the planes will not fly again until next year.

Beat me to it @ThomasR :wink:

What do you guys think about this?! I wasn’t really expecting this but I guess we will start to see more 767’s and 752’s replacing some of these routes. I wonder if any other airlines will do the same…
@Kineheber What do you think?

They say they have been reactivating 764s to make up for lost capacity.
