United Airlines said Tuesday it plans to resume flying the Boeing 777-200 planes equipped with Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines sometime "in the future."
The announcement comes two months after United removed all 52 Boeing 777-200 plans powered by Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines from its flight schedule due to a catastrophic engine failure in one of its planes earlier this year.

"We look forward to getting that aircraft back to safe operations in the future," United Chief Operations Officer Jon Roitman said in an earnings call with investors Tuesday.
In February, federal regulators ordered the airline to step up inspections of all Boeing 777s equipped with the Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines after United Airlines Flight 328 was forced to make an emergency landing at Denver International Airport shortly after takeoff.
