After many years of embarrassing durability problems with a series of Trent 1000 engines, the model’s newest iteration, The Trent 1000 TEN, was supposed to mark a clean break with mistakes of the past.

Rolls-Royce is now testing an enhanced blade that should resolve the issues, although that will not be available to airlines until early 2020.

Rolls-Royce says that tests of TEN engines operating at high flight frequencies revealed that “a small number of these engines have needed to have their HPT blades replaced earlier than scheduled”.
