Lufthansa says to modify one A380 engine

German airline Lufthansa said Wednesday it was varying an engine on one of its three Airbus A380 planes but that it was not related to oil leaks detected by other carriers.

"Subsequent an inspection of the engines, we have decided to put back one of them as a precautionary measure, subsequent talks with (engine manufacturer) Rolls-Royce," a spokesman for the German flag carrier told AFP.

"This has not something to do with the oil leaks detected in engines of Qantas and Singapore Airlines," he said, adding that the move would not result in any delays.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) on Wednesday grounded three of its A380s since of problems with their Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines, joining Qantas in halting operations on the world's major passenger plane.

Australian carrier Qantas was enforced to ground its whole Airbus fleet after a mid-air engine blowout on one of the planes nearly a week ago.
