In the end a good outcome to a critical event during take off and kudos to the UA crew for their handling of the situation.
Crew on today's (arrival) 839 were saying it was birds into both engines.

UA47 FRA-IAH is scheduled to depart 3 hours late due to late inbound. This time a 772. It seems like everyday there is a massive delay between IAH, ORD, EWR and IAD transatlantic flights. I don't remember it being this frequent.

7/8/16 UA 869 SFO-HKG (N107UA) departed at 1633, 2 hours 43 minutes late and estimated to arrive at 2139, 2 hours 59 minutes late due aircraft maintenance.

Inbound arrived from LHR (UA 900), which is suppose to arrive at 1315, 35 minutes before the scheduled departure of UA 869. My guess is the original frame broke down or they had to shuffle frames with 2 broken frames (SFO-HKG / SFO-ICN).

UA1095 7/8 EWR-LIM 752 cancelled due to severe weather conditions in our route network
UA1005 7/8 LIM-EWR 752 cancelled due to severe weather conditions in our route network

UA183 7/9 GUM-MNL 738 diverted to CRK (Clark Field(!), which .com calls "Luzon Island" ) and then flew the very short 56-mile hop CRK-MNL, arriving 4 hours late due to "aircraft refuelling difficulties". Anyone know the full story of what happened?
UA184 7/9 MNL-GUM 738 cancelled due to required crew rest (Is this new? never saw this listed as reason before)

the Australia 789s are at it again...

UA839 7/10 LAX-SYD 789 cancelled due to aircraft maintenance
UA840 7/12 SYD-LAX 789 cancelled due to aircraft maintenance

So much for improved reliability with the 787... bring back the sUA 772.
