So... Newer engines do not yet have those cracks or newer engines have different blades and therefore have no cracks?

As I amAMT who likes to change engines, it is good thing. Unfortunately I do not have rating for A350...anyway I think that engine which stays on aircraft for 4 to 5 years or 16000 to 22000 flight hours its still amazing piece of technology. And decreased fuel consumption vastly outweights shortened maintenance intervals.

I think it's inevitable airlines/authorities will find cracks and defects with the A330NEO's Trent 7000. Its a flawed engine design; not dangerous but requires huge amount of maintenance, money and a lot of oversight to make sure it doesn't get to that point.

If I were Airbus, I would reach out to GE for a second engine option on its wide bodies.
Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!

Another request to the moderators. Can you change the title to IPC from IPT. Very different things.

The same issues on the Trent 1000 TEN are on the 7000. There are modifications in place so your opinion is not really valid.
