More engine woes for Qantas

first_imgAustralia’s iconic airline is in trouble again after an engine fault was discovered on one of its superjumbo jets at a factory in France. A faulty oil tube is said to be the cause of the problem Qantas is facing in regards to the new Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine.
