But with the new Trent 1000 TEN engines, these new planes can fly for only about 10-11 months before grounding for checks on turbine blades cracks and replacements, but hope by next year RR will rammed up its production of the engines.blades and somehow improve on its lifespan. Hence if SIA have sufficient spare engines by then, the 787s wont be grounded for too long but still some hours for just engine change. SIA ,ay want to seriosuy relook into other engine GE for its remainder of 20 787s, as this will save alot of downtme for its 787s for engine tests and engine replacements for thr next 3 years. As RR will likely take 1-2 years to rectify and have a much better remanufactured turbine blades but will still need another year after that to replace the exisiting ones on the current engines.

Not particularly comforting, is it?

I guess if the problems at Charleston are true, maybe RR has some time to get their house in order...

Or maybe we could see further transfers of orders to Everett-made -8s and -9s for Scoot, like what's happening with OJI and OJJ. I believe -10s are being made exclusively in Charleston because of problems getting the fuselage sections to Everett or something. And/or SQ themselves may have overordered and are rightsizing + accounting for Scoot expansion.

EDIT: OJ-series, not OF-series, oops!

Concerning. And apparently systemic.

The US have made their bed and now it's time to lie in it. They've developed a corporate culture with a cavalier attitude to regulation and a focus on rewarding only administrators who prioritise short-term profits over all else. You can't build a strong organisation if everyone is told to think the same way and now the weaknesses of this approach are inevitably appearing for all to see.

Add to that the shift in the role of regulatory bodies from regulating to promoting the industry. The trust in the entire system is being seriously eroded, 737 MAX as a sad example of this profit above all culture.

Boeing will overcome these issues and I stil believe in Boeing and their aircrafts. Althought there are some issues however do think the media have oversensationalise things as they often do in almost every major news.

Yup, I saw that documentary years ago and not much seems to have improved. Scary and while not wanting to sound alarmist it is almost that these days one has to consider aircraft type and engines not for comfort and latest seat products but for safety.

According to this press release, SQ has put aside money for cabin fitting for only 20 78Js.

Besides the 2 that got transferred to Scoot, could we see further changes to the remaining 27, especially with the concerns of Charleston's production quality?

With Scoot cutting HNL and SQ still needing to replace ~35 older generation regional aircraft, I doubt we will see more than a few orders transferred to Scoot.

Anyone knows if the 2 787s that are grounded due to the RR engines issue, are still on the ground as have been like 2 weeks already.
