Norwegian redundancies

Heard from a source that due to the ongoing RR engine issues, at any one time 4 x 787s will be grounded throughout the next 6 months. Wet lease being drafted in but effectively the operation is 4 aircraft worth of crews too heavy (pilots and CC). Every single B787 LGW based pilot (in other words those working for Norwegian UK Longhaul) have been given a bunch of options ranging from part time (month on/month off) through to 3, 6 or 12 month unpaid career breaks. Bidding process has commenced. If not enough interested people, then redundancies will be on the cards. Damn Boeing and RR for the mess they've created!

Not having much luck with these RR products, combined with the 737MAX issues.
A massive pain in the ass.

I am sure the airlines affected are being paid compensation by the manufacturers, I would also expect that a portion of the compensation should cover affected crew. Worthwhile getting some legal eagles to investigate this one.

Scandi media today reporting all US flight from CPH closing down after October 2019 and a bunch og other routes from Scandi and LGW.......

By the wording of the written in the media it looks like a total reset......

Hope for the best for the crews.....

The compensation is not going to come over night and is probably not going to be in cash either.

The RR engined 787 will prove to be industry's greatest mistake.

Indeed, but some gossip is more malicious,
and id be inclined to say the proportion of professional pilots to other , is fairly low these days

Come to BA. We’re short of 787 copilots! So much so, we’ve got a few 3 crew trips using heavy Captains.

A solution has been found to the slight overcrewing, which is favourable .

And when do you think they might communicate this? So far it's been a mishmash of changes for some people people and not others with no option to accept or reject. A really bizarre way to handle someone's employment.

Any update on the situation?
Stocks going down a tad lately and no Max this side of Xmass.
Are the 787 RR flying again, and if not how many grounded?
