The bill to fix Rolls-Royce's (RR.L) Trent 1000 engine has risen by another £800 million as the aerospace group battles to reduce disruption to airline customers that have had to ground Boeing 787 passenger planes for repairs.
The Trent is one of two engine options for the Boeing 787, which can also be powered by rival GE Aviation's (GE.N) GEnx engines.
East said the Trent 1000 problem was durability rather than reliability, but the company had struggled to fix one issue on blades on the TEN variant.
The solution it had found would require additional investment in maintenance capacity across a number of sites and spare engines to reduce disruption, he said.
