An Etihad Airways Boeing 777-300, registration A6-ETF performing flight EY-151 from Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) to Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA), was accelerating for takeoff from Abu Dhabi's runway 31L when the crew rejected takeoff at about 78 knots above ground due to an engine (GE90) failure. The aircraft slowed safely, vacated the runway via the first turn off 1500 meters down the runway and returned to the apron.

A replacement Boeing 777-300 registration A6-ETE departed Abu Dhabi with a delay of about 5 hours.

A passenger reported they were accelerating for about 200 to 300 meters when an engine failure prompted the takeoff to be rejected resulting in full braking. The aircraft subsequently returned to the gate, an aircraft change was expected.
