Irrelevant....... the issues are because they picked the 787.
They could have picked GE engines for their 787s.
But they couldn't have known these problems at the time they bought those aircraft. At that moment, the engines they picked were supposed to be safe. Only later it became clear there were issues with those engines, but by that time they already had them.
Of course they could have picked GE engines, but at the time there was no reason to. They could have picked another plane instead of the 787, but at the time there was no reason to. They picked what looked like a good choice, only later it turned out to be a bad choice.
It's not Boeing's fault RR f***** up the engine.
It's not Boeing's fault Norwegian chose RR engines.
