Currently undergoing a heavy C-check. Aircraft is not slated to return to the line till 5/31.

Aircraft is receiving a landing gear renewal, dual engine swap, as well as interior cosmetic fixes in addition to the standard C-check items.

answering myself here.. I see that b-16310 is back to service. yet b-17883 is still AOG and reason unknown. What a pity for a new aircraft!

B-17883 is grounded due to production faults that were discovered during a routine overnight check. Aircraft is currently being assessed by Boeingís AOG team in coordination with EGAT and GE.

Thanks hayzel7773 for the info. Boeing really need to up their game in manufacturing aircrafts.. I would rather they delay like airbus than having issues after they are made....
