Rolls-Royce to epedite B787 engine deliveries

Rolls-Royce confirmed it has informed Boeing that Trent 100 deliveries for the B787 programme will not be able to support Boeing’s test-flight programme requirements (AFP, 27-Aug-2010). Boeing announced another delay for the B787 programme last week, pushing deliveries back to mid-1Q2011. Rolls-Royce and Boeing are working to expedite deliveries to support the B787 programme schedule.
