I'm still looking for a usable source but there's a report going around that British Airways has announced that they're going to repair the 777
that was damaged in a fire in September, while taking off from Las Vegas. The aircraft suffered an uncontained engine failure of the left engine
while starting its takeoff roll. Fire broke out as a result, and it suffered significant damage to the lower fuselage, wing, and engine. It was
thought that it would be written off as a result of the damage, but the plan is to repair it now.
Boeing engineers examined the aircraft, and a plan has been put together to get the aircraft to a repair facility where final repairs, and
certifications of the repairs will be completed. A new engine will be placed on the aircraft, and repairs to the fuselage will be completed, to allow
a one time flight to a repair facility. Once there, the aircraft will undergo extensive repairs, that will allow it to be placed back into service.
