787 Trent 1000 Groundings to Increase
With the summer holidays approaching, airline customers of Rolls-Royce’s Trent 1000 engines have expressed their concern with the downing of the 787 aircraft, and now are requesting lease agreements for other aircraft to fill in their gaps. These requests are effectively putting additional pressure onto Rolls-Royce to speed up the process of completing a permanent fix to the problem.
With the help of mba’s STAR Fleet Database, this week’s insight further identifies owners of the 787 employing the Package C variant Trent 1000 engine who may be at risk of having a portion of their fleet grounded. The current amount of grounded 787 aircraft has reached 30, but we predict that number to rise around 50 as more aircraft enter into inspection.
