Boeing warns airlines about GE engines icing

November 24, 2013 (CHICAGO)

The issue is not on the ground but in the air and affects aircraft with certain General Electric engines.

Boeing is recommending against flying those aircraft near thunderstorms that might contain ice crystals. The company says engine performance could be diminished.

Models affected are the 747-8 and the 787 Dreamliner.

Boeing says it is working with GE to deal with the issue.
