"DL2123 en route from Atlanta to Seattle was diverted to Salt Lake City out of caution after an indicator pointed to a possible problem with one of its engines," a Delta official said in a press release. “The flight landed safely without incident and rolled to the gate without assistance. We are working on resuming customers for a later flight. We apologize for the delay and inconvenience. "
Why It Matters: This incident happened two days after a United Airlines (NASDAQ: UAL) flight had a broken engine and exterior panel debris spilled in a Colorado community shortly after leaving Denver. There were no injuries from the flight that involved a 777 aircraft.
Boeing today requested grounding of its 777th. Powered by the 4000-112 engine from Pratt & Whitney, a subsidiary of Raytheon Technologies (NASDAQ: RTX). The Delta aircraft was also powered by a Pratt & Whitney engine, although it is not yet certain whether it is the same model.
Also two days ago, the engine of a Boeing 747 freighter flying from the Netherlands to New York City exploded shortly after take-off, causing engine parts to shower the Dutch city of Meerssen. Two people were injured by the falling debris, and the Bermuda-based Longtail Aviation aircraft landed safely in Belgium.
