Updated : September 12, 2018 09:36 AM IST
Pratt & Whitney rectified flaws in three areas – ranging from degradation in the combustion chamber to a faulty design in the seals, the report said, adding that the vibration is a result of the damage in the low pressure turbine blade of the geared turbo fan engines.
The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will issue an advisory on the engine snag issue after its investigation is concluded.
Currently, nine aircrafts of both GoAir and Indigo are grounded as the company is struggling to provide spare engines, the report added.
