Another spanner in Rolls’ works

The pressure on Rolls-Royce over its troubled Trent engines increased yesterday when Singapore Airlines revealed that it had grounded two Boeing 787-10s, report The Daily Telegraph and The Times.

Articles cite engines wearing out faster than expected as the reason for Singapore’s decision, adding to Rolls’ woes. Rolls has put a £1.5bn price tag on resolving problems with the first version of the Trent 1000.
