Does anyone know the latest on Noerwegian 787 fleet vis a vis engines...?

Given that the Trent 1000 must be decoupled and inspected more often where does this leave Norwegian and their ability to mount a meaningful 787 schedule this winter..?

Thatís why theyíve significantly reduced the winter flying program this year. No point operating routes with no winter demand like Seattle and Chicago in January using wet leased aircraft.

Norwegian have 5 787s parked up for the winter, am I interpreting this correctly?

Its one one thing for Jet2 to park used 733 & 757s, but sparking new 787s with large capital/leases to pay.

Like BA, Virgin and every other RR-powered 787 operator have been doing for the last 3 years?

I donít think 5 is an official number, the inspection program is being ramped up this winter by all accounts. Shedding seasonal routes for the Winter to get the bulk of the work done during a period when there is no money to be made is sensible.

Also worth noting that Norwegian do the majority of their maintenance in Prestwick, so aircraft will be passing through for other reasons than RR-related ones. This may of course change when the new Boeing hangar at LGW comes on-line.
