    More trouble for the Trent 1000: “Pending engine replacements, two SIA 787-10 aircraft have been removed from service.”

    A little early to say that obviously (looking for the blue font) but IMHO the blade-cracking problems with the Trent 1000 are pretty serious; and sadly, based on this most recent incident with the TEN, endemic.

    "Boeing dispatched 737 MAX head VP Keith Leverkuhn to help Rolls-Royce overcome the problems, showing their importance as 34 aircraft are grounded and this number could rise in coming months as the 383 affected engines power a quarter of the 787 fleet. The B787 production rise to 14 monthly by mid-2019 should not be affected as 70% have GE Aircraft Engines, but seven new airliners are assembled awaiting engines"
