Andrew Nocella, United’s chief commercial officer, said the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued the final paperwork for the wide-body jets, which were grounded after a United flight to Honolulu suffered an engine failure and made an emergency landing in February 2021 in Denver.

“Late last night, the FAA issued the final paperwork on our Pratt Whitney powered 777s,” Nocella told a Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) conference. “We expect to start flying the aircraft in ad hoc probably within the next week.”
