I would take a look at the airline NOT the a/c. UA
's 777's have been having issues b/c their pilots need to go back and get re-certified to taxi the damn a/c.
1)777 vs. AirJamaka 340
2)777 vs. Jetbridge at LAX
3)777 vs. 744 at LAX
4)Engine failure and divert to YellowKnife while enroute FRA
(but this is expected of any airline)
1)Fuel hatch left open and not screwed in my mataince, returns to LHR
2)Engine fire, returns to IAH
3)Fire on wing during/after refueling process, kills one ground crew member at IAH
These are all airline issues. So all this a vs. b stuff is stupid. Do you think the a/c wants to run into another a/c? Do you think the a/c wants to leave it's own fuel hatch open??? The 777 is still one of if not THE safest airliner in the world.
Thanks again and hope that all is well for the passengers.
(And how long are these a/c out of service????)
