    Posted by Rupa Haria 3:45 PM on Nov 04, 2010

    Qantas and Singapore airlines have both effectively grounded their A380 fleets following today’s earlier incident involving a Qantas A380. Lufthansa is expected to follow suit shortly.*

    Qantas, Singapore and Lufthansa’s A380s are all powered by the Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine. 

    AVIATION WEEK’s international editor Robert Wall commented about evidence of earlier problems involving the Rolls-Royce Trent 900 in this blog.

    In this video, Max Kingsley-Jones, AVIATION WEEK’s senior transport editor, offers his take on the incident.

    *Lufthansa confirmed later in the day that it will carry out engine inspections between legs and therefore does not expect any interruption to the A380 operation.
