Rolls-Royce Says Boeing 787 Groundings Will Get Worse

Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc is expecting a sharp increase in the number of Boeing Co. 787 Dreamliner planes that will have to be grounded because of faults with the engine maker’s Trent 1000 turbine. About 80 percent of the Package C engine variant, which debuted with Boeing’s marquee 787-9 jetliner, have undergone initial checks for cracking or signs of wear and tear on turbine blades, the person said.
