Reuters reported this morning that Air New Zealand had said that "two recent events" involving Rolls-Royce's Trent 1000 engines had prompted it to cancel and delay some global flights over the coming weeks.

Singapore Airlines and Air New Zealand on Thursday announced they will jointly launch a third daily flight between Singapore and Auckland starting late next year.
