AAIB: BA Boeing 777 had low pressure in fuel pumps when it crashed
12 May 2008

The U.K. AAIB issued special bulletin, describing their progress in the investigation into the Boeing 777 accident at London-Heathrow in January, 2008.
The report states: “The high pressure (HP) fuel pumps from both engines have unusual and fresh cavitation damage to the outlet ports consistent with operation at low inlet pressure.
The evidence to date indicates that both engines had low fuel pressure at the inlet to the HP pump. Restrictions in the fuel system between the aircraft fuel tanks and each of the engine HP pumps, resulting in reduced fuel flows, is suspected.” (AAIB)
