Rolls-Royce are in big trouble indeed. They are millions of dollars in-debt and their engines are having problems left, right and centre. In this particular incident, the aircraft was 11 years old. Maybe Egypt Air maintenance was not up to scratch, which would not be surprising…

No, as said, this incident was on the 14th of May. The QF94 incident happened yesterday
