United’s B777 schedules now returning to normal

2 Apr 2008 by Mark Caswell
United’s B777-operated flights departing the UK are now operating normally, following safety checks which grounded the 52-strong fleet yesterday. Schedules were disrupted when the airline was forced to ground its fleet of B777s which caused many delays and cancellations to services. The disruption was caused by the airline having to perform functional checks related to fire suppression systems in the cargo area of the aircraft. However there might still be knock-on delays throughout the rest of United’s network. Says a spokesperson, “We are asking passengers to check their flight status on before leaving for the airport. United is working to accommodate passengers on other flights and airlines.” For more information go to Report by Alex McWhirter
