LATAM leases 744 from Wamos as Rolls Royce engine issues bite

LATAM, along with several other big airlines has had to lease in aircraft to over come the growing problems of taking 787’s out of service to deal with engine replacements – some of which could be months.

Wamos is leasing a 744 and a pair of A332’s to LATAM for months until it can return the Dreamliners to service.

Air New Zealand and Virgin Atlantic have been especially hit by the issue.
