ANA 787 On-going Engine ProblemsBack to Forum
I know ANA grounded their 787 fleet in mid 2016 over engine problems. I flew out of HND last week and saw 3 of their 787s on the apron without engines. Is this really still a problem? Must be costing Rolls Royce a fortune if that’s the case?10 Dec 2017
Air New Zealand is having similar issues, with a number of its flights delayed or cancelled due to the need for engine maintenance on its 787s (mentioned at the bottom of the following article):
Seems Rolls-Royce had underestimated how long the engines would need before requiring repair and advised ANZ to get it done quick – could be something similar with ANA?11 Dec 2017
More significantly the RR engines on B787s being operated by BA and Virgin Atlantic are having to be inspected.
Some months ago Thai Airways also had engine problems with its B787s.11 Dec 2017
I understand that BA now has 3 Dreamliners in the hanger with engine issues. Some flights are being cancelled and other routes are using spare B777 metal. Quite worrying actually as I fly the B787 frequently. If anyone has more specifics would be nice to share.22 Dec 2017
