An unusual rash of engine shutdowns since early December has temporarily stranded three of the normally reliable General Electric-powered Boeing 777-300ERs.
Although each incident involved a shutdown of the GE90-115B, GE’s investigation so far indicates the causes of each power loss appears to come from three different sources, says a company spokeswoman.
The incidents have forced two different Air France airliners to make emergency landings at alternate airports since 12 December. Similarly, on 1 February, a Singapore Airlines 777-300ER was forced to land at Frankfurt International Airport in Germany.
