Rolls-Royce suffers fresh wave of troubles with Dreamliner engines

Singapore Airlines will operate a mixture of Airbus A380s and Boeing 777-300ERs on the service, while Air New Zealand will use a newly configured 787-9 aircraft.

Air New Zealand will cancel six global flights and retime others between 7 and 10 December to accommodate urgent maintenance on the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines that power its Boeing 787-9 fleet.

"Rolls-Royce does not have any replacement engines available while this maintenance work is undertaken which means some schedule changes are unavoidable", Air NZ adds.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Air New Zealand on Thursday said they will jointly launch a third daily flight between Singapore and Auckland, boosting capacity on the route by 40 per cent and adding more than 165,000 seats annually between the two cities.

The New Zealand Transport Accident Investigation Commission (TAIC) is looking into two recent 787-9 flights that were turned back after takeoff after problems arose during the flight.

The tie-up would put the newly formed group in a strong position in major markets such as the UK, Italy and Australia, it added. If the maximum stake is cut to only £50 from £100, shareholders are set to receive the maximum distribution.

Flight NZ30 left Auckland for Buenos Aires at 8.21pm, but returned an hour and a half later as a precaution due to a "possible engineering issue", according to an airline spokesperson.

Media reports suggested passengers felt the aircraft shake and the electrical power was lost in the cabin for a moment amid some loud noises.

The pilot elected to shut down one of the plane's engines as a precaution during flight NZ99 to Narita, Tokyo.

"It's not uncommon for long-term engine programmes to experience technical issues during their life and we manage them through proactive maintenance", a Rolls-Royce spokeswoman was quoted as saying by Reuters. The investigation into that incident recommended that Rolls-Royce review the design of the intermediate pressure turbines.
