Today I spoke to one of the engineers who looked after this fleet who corrected me - $15 million USD each for 6 engines!. The aircraft were parked in Auckland against advice to Management. The only engine to remain servivable was the spare in the hangar. The rest are toast with major corrosion and water damage... I would imagine that a few people have been invited to tea and biscuits in the boardroom over this!
