Troublesome advanced engines for Boeing, Airbus jets have disrupted airlines and shaken travelers | Seattle Times |

A slew of technical problems with the three most advanced models of jet aircraft engines is widely disrupting operations at airlines, bleeding cash from the engine makers and grounding significant numbers of Airbus and Boeing jets.
The most difficult of the issues has this month left almost 50 Boeing 787 Dreamliners sold to some of the world's top airlines sitting powerless on the ground, waiting for engines before they can fly again.

And if the problem isn't contained, it could derail Boeing's plan to raise the 787 production rate next year.

British engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce has been inspecting its Trent 1000 engines on the Dreamliners for cracked turbine blades deep inside, and taking off those with cracks for repair.
