3 Min Read.(Reuters) – U.S. regulators announced extra inspections on Boeing Co 777 jets using the same type of engine that shed debris over Denver on Saturday, while Japan went further and suspended their use while it considers what action to take.

The regulatory moves involving Pratt & Whitney 4000 engines came after a United Airlines 777 landed safely at Denver International Airport on Saturday after its right engine failed.

Japan’s transport ministry ordered Japan Airlines Co Ltd and ANA Holdings Inc to suspend the use of 777s with P&W4000 engines while it considered whether to take additional measures.
