Air New Zealand has had to ground its 787-9’s following an advisory from Rolls Royce.

ANZ posted this statement:

“Air New Zealand advises that it will be retiming some international flights and making a limited number of cancellations over coming weeks as a result of two recent events involving the Rolls-Royce engines on its Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

Rolls-Royce has advised that some of the Trent 1000 engines in the airline’s Boeing 787-9 fleet require maintenance sooner than previously indicated.

Rolls-Royce does not have any replacement engines available while this maintenance work is undertaken which means some schedule changes are unavoidable”.

The company operates 11 787-9’s at present.
