More woes for Norwegian's Longhaul Ops

Just announced: Rolls Royce have issued a SB affecting the Trent 1000 TEN engines used by all of NUK's 787s. It calls for more regular inspections of the blades, and a requirement to uncouple the engines when they reach 700 cycles (so the two engines on any one aircraft have different cycles). This now has a significant impact to NUK's summer operation with increased downtime of the fleet. As a result, 4 (four) wet leases will be drafted in to cover the summer programme. Employers and unions have been notified (less flying, less income for employees).
