A Korean Air Boeing 777 experienced an engine fire in Tokyo this past week, resulting in an emergency evacuation of the aircraft.  A total of 19 people were injured or reported feeling unwell following the evacuation.

Emirates has announced plans to introduce the Boeing 777 on its Cyprus flights, replacing the Airbus A340-300 that currently covers this route.

Cathay Pacific has taken delivery of its first Airbus A350 aircraft.

Airbus has launched an initiative to address A350 delivery delays and supplier issues.  Cabin suppliers have topped the list for delays in aircraft deliveries.

Rolls-Royce aims to sell one Trent XWB engine, which equips the Airbus A350, at a pace of one per day by 2017.
