A sensible decision by JAL. This move will add pressure for United to retire their dozens of PW powered 777s, some of them the oldest ones produced. Line numbers 4 and 5 were the United ones that had blades failed & lost cowlings.

As an Engineer with over 50 years in and around the aviation world, I think all designs must ere on the side of conservative material properties and I have my doubts about the growing size of fan blades especially on two engine aircraft flying over long expanses of ocean

The verb is "err" not ere. Sorry to be such a grammar nazi. Good comment!

Wonder how difficult (if it makes sense of course...) to re-engine them with GE?

That's a lot of aircraft with PW's.

What's also sad is that JAL is going to Airbus rather than Boeing or other US manufacturers. Next will be a China aircraft manufacture.

Just remembered... Didn't Boeing Aircraft drop the A-bombs on Japan?
