Does anyone know what is the actual -not list- prices that large customers have paid for the RR 1000. Same question for the GE GEnx engines. I am told that RR sold them very cheap in order to grab market share and that eventually through spare parts and tech assistance they would recover investment and start making money. Insofar the GEnx, it is being circulated for a few years now that they were not sold that cheaply for GE considered that this engine was superior. Well the jury seems to have made a decision insofar reliability.

Speaking of an article that doesn't say much.... there is a problem with the engine, but not saying what it is... Must be pretty severe as they won't allow 2 effected engines on the same aircraft!

Just something wearing out quicker than intended, no reason to cause chaos by grounding.
