SINGAPORE, April 2 (Reuters) - Singapore Airlines Ltd said on Tuesday it had grounded two Boeing Co 787-10 jets fitted with Rolls-Royce Holdings PLC Trent 1000 TEN engines after checks of its fleet found premature blade deterioration.
The jets have been removed from service pending engine replacements, the airline said in a statement.
The Trent 1000 TEN is the latest version of an engine that has had a problematic entry into service.
Rolls-Royce in February raised a Trent 1000 accounting charge to 790 million pounds ($1.03 billion) from 554 million pounds at the half year, contributing to a full-year operating loss of 1.16 billion pounds, and allocated another 100 million pounds in cash to the problem. ($1 = 0.7666 pounds)
