Boeing close to 777 fix - report

Boeing is expected to have fixed the issue of engine covers, that broke apart on a United Airline flight earlier this year, by June, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Citing people familiar with the matter, the report stated that the fix includes a strengthening of the engine covers. The strengthening is meant to prevent airplane parts from detaching mid-flight, therefore posing a risk to the plane and the ground below.

The report comes as United Airlines allegedly hopes to reinstate the Boeing 777 jets, which have been under investigation by the United States regulating bodies since the end of February.
