According to a recent issue of Flight International, the problem was caused
by refurbished fan blades used instead of all new ones. Further analysis
also seemed to indicate that this was not a general problem with refurbished
fan blades but was a fault in single batch of these.

ANZ are now in the works of replacing all these fan blades.
