A Thomas Cook Airbus A330-200, registration G-OMYT performing flight MT-2825 from Los Angeles,CA (USA) to Manchester,EN (UK), was accelerating for takeoff on Los Angeles' runway 25R when the crew rejected takeoff at very low speed (less than 20 knots) reporting the failure of the #1 engine (Trent 772, left hand) and requested emergency services to inspect the engine. The aircraft stopped on the runway about 180 meters/600 feet down the runway. The crew of the next departure already lining up the runway reported seeing no fire. The controller asked other crews whether they could see any fire, a second crew in the departure queue reported seeing no fire or smoke. When the controller queried whether the aircraft could vacate the runway the crew declined stating they still needed fire services to check the engine and recommended to the controller to initiate a runway inspection in case they had lost any debris. While waiting for the trucks the controller again queried whether they could vacate the runway, the crew declined and stated they wanted to wait for the trucks.

Following inspection by emergency services the aircraft vacated the runway about 10 minutes after the rejected takeoff and taxied to the apron. The runway was opened again.

A passenger reported they heard a clanking and banging sound from underneath the aircraft. The crew subsequently announced an engine had failed. They subsequently disembarked and were taken to hotels. A replacement aircraft was estimated to arrive on Aug 29th 2017.

A replacement Airbus A330-200 registration G-MDBD reached Manchester with a delay of 76 hours.

The occurrence aircraft is still on the ground in Los Angeles about 95 hours after the rejected takeoff.
