United is working with Pratt & Whitney, Boeing, and the Federal Aviation Administration (F) on fan-blade inspections.
Some of United's 777-200s are among the first that Boeing manufactured, dating to 1995. It sparked speculation about whether the carrier would pursue repairs, as some Asian airlines have done.
That same issue affects some Max aircraft flown by American Airlines Group, Southwest Airlines and Alaska Air.
United declined to comment on whether all of the 777s would be repaired and returned to the fleet. Pratt & Whitney also had no comment.
