About third of Norwegian Air Dreamliner feet is currently out of service.
Six of Norwegian Dreamliners are currently parked at Prestwick Airport due to Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine issues:
- LN-LNA (B788)
- LN-LNB (B788)
- LN-LND (B788)
- LN-LNG (B788)
- LN-LNH (B788)
- SE-RXY (B789)
Rolls-Royce will take longer than expected to fix problems with its Trent 1000 engine, frustrating efforts to get Boeing 787s grounded by the glitch flying again.
Rolls-Royce said on Friday it had sped up turbine blade replacement for some models, leading to additional removals and delaying a reduction in the number of grounded aircraft to single figures until the second quarter of 2020.
The company faces 1.6 billion pounds in extra costs and disruption as a result of the engine problem which is due to the poor durability of components.
Italian investigators have discovered that a blade fracture within the intermediate pressure turbine of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engine on a Norwegian Air Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, caused the uncontained engine failure that forced the plane to perform an emergency landing at Rome-Fiumicino Airport on August 10, 2019.
