I am not a pilot, A&P mechanic, stock holder, just a paying passenger with deep seeded loyalty to UA from the CO days. If this particular P&W engine is an issue, why can't they be swapped out for another 777 certified pair of engines? They all mount to the same pylons, burn the same fuel, probably weigh about the same, produce similar thrust, and probably communicate the same data to the cockpit.
