Aircraft and crew

As the aircraft was taking off from Runway 34R at Tokyo Haneda, the pilots heard a loud bang coming from the left. The pilots aborted the takeoff and the aircraft came to a stop, whereupon an evacuation commenced. All the occupants escaped, but 12 passengers were injured and were taken to a hospital near the airport. Incoming flights were diverted to Tokyo's Narita International Airport and to Osaka. The airport firefighters quickly extinguished the fire. The aircraft reportedly travelled 700 metres down the runway before coming to a stop, with engine-parts scattered 600 metres from the point at which the aircraft began accelerating and tire-marks 700 metres from that point.
The Japan Transport Safety Board (JTSB), the South Korean Aviation and Railway Accident Investigation Board (ARAIB), and the United States National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) all investigated the accident, with assistance from experts in South Korea and the United States. On 30 May 2016, investigators revealed that the LP turbine blades on the left (number one) Pratt & Whitney PW4098 engine had 'shattered', with fragments piercing the engine cover, with fragments subsequently found on the runway. The engine's HP turbine blades and HP compressor were intact and free of abnormalities, and investigators found no evidence of a bird strike. As of June 2016, the investigation into the cause of the accident was still ongoing.
The aircraft was repaired and returned to service with Korean Air on 3 June 2016.
A later JTSB investigative report, released on 26 July 2018, discussed a significant number of problems related to the failure and the response of the crew and passengers to it. These included poor maintenance standards that overlooked a crack growing in the LP turbine disc in the engine created by metal fatigue that eventually failed, the failure of the crew to locate the list of emergency procedures for use in such an emergency, beginning evacuation of the aircraft whilst the engines were still turning meaning there was a risk of passengers being blown away by the engines, and passengers ignoring instructions to leave luggage behind when using the evacuation slides risking piercing of the slides. As a result of the fire, the FAA issued an Airworthiness Directive mandating inspection of engines of the type involved in the fire to evaluate the condition of the components which failed on Flight 2708.:56
- ^The aircraft is a Boeing 777-300 model; Boeing assigns a unique customer code for each company that buys one of its aircraft, which is applied as an infix in the model number at the time the aircraft is built. The code for Korean Air is 'B5', hence '777-3B5'.
