    The spike will occur ahead of a deadline next month for mandated inspections forced by durability problems, Rolls said in an emailed statement.

    Just what I want to hear about 50 percent of what is keeping me off the ground over hundreds of miles of open ocean.

    Yep ......which is better having 3 engines left or one. In the event one quits in the middle of the ocean.

    ... it's all good until the "big one" happens. It's never the "kingsmen" that get wacked, just the principles. Seen that happen a few times!! The "biggly one" needs to wack a few "kingsmen" just to lighten the budget!!
