Japan requests airlines stop using Boeing 777s with P&W4000 engines

Japan's transport ministry on Sunday evening requested domestic airlines avoid using Boeing 777 planes with Pratt & Whitney 4000 engines until further notice following an accident in the United States involving the same model.

A United Airlines flight, with 231 passengers and 10 crew on board, landed safely at Denver International Airport on Saturday after its right engine failed shortly after takeoff. The Boeing 777-200 plane was powered by two PW4000 engines.
