Logohu, if I recall correctly, Boeing admitted responsibility for the pylon cracks in the BA B767's (the first RR powered ones in service) - they thought that Rolls Royce had " over-engineered" the specs for the pylons and had made some weight-saving alterations to the pylon design. It cost a lot of money for replacement pylons as well as compensation while the BA fleet was grounded.
