"We received a message from Boeing to the effect that there may be an issue with the gearbox on the engines of the 787s in ANA's fleet.

Another Rolls Royce engine problem... First with the A380's Trent 800s and now the 1000s. I Personally like the 787 with the GE engines more. Just my opinion.
Does kind of make you wonder
GE makes the best aircraft engines hands down.
Let's don't rush to judgement here though; RR has been in business many years. What there have been problems with though have been the new stuff here lately on high prifile aircraft. Bad Luck or Bad QC?????? Or Rush to production?????????????
I would say rushed to production...
.. Perhaps another delay in seeing ANA and the 787 starting service at KSJC
