FlightGlobal reports that LATAM Airlines Group expects to return its “entire Boeing 787 fleet” back to service “by year-end, after it was forced to ground more than half its 787s in the second quarter due to engine issues.” The carrier currently has six 787s grounded, down from a peak of 13 aircraft in June, according to LATAM CFO Ramiro Alfonsin. The remaining aircraft are awaiting Rolls-Royce personnel to perform preventive engine maintenance. Alfonsin called the grounding a “most critical situation” for the airline during the second quarter. (Image: Boeing 787-10. Credit: Boeing)
